DIRECTIONS

  • Blend butter, cottage cheese and flour with hands to form dough. Add more flour if cheese is watery. Shape into 1-inch balls and put in refrigerator overnight. (Dough may be kept under refrigeration for up to one month.).
  • Preheat oven to 375° F. Lightly grease a cookie sheet; set aside.
  • Cook apricots until tender; drain and puree. Add 2 cups Sugar while still hot. Cool. In a separate bowl, mix almonds and 1 ¼ cup Sugar; set aside.
  • Press each dough ball into a 3-inch round (make only ten horns at a time so dough will remain cold). Place one teaspoon of apricot filling into center of each round. Roll into shape of horn.
  • Dip in egg whites and then roll up in sugared almonds. Place on prepared sheet and bake for 12 minutes. Remove from oven, sprinkle with Confectioners Powdered Sugar, if desired.
  • Note: Rounds can be folded over filling and edges press close for a half-moon filled cookie.
