Lemon Currant Scones

I love scones. Crispy on the outside, flaky inside. There is a trick to making a good scone I think. Not too much handling of the dough. Like a pie crust. I am not an expert but I like to make them & keep them in the freezer. When I want to eat one, I just pop it in the microwave briefly so it is just defrosted & not over-done.

Dasha’s Cottage Cheese Pie

An old family recipe for a cottage cheese ‘pie’ baked in a square pan…so not really a ‘pie’ but not a square either! This recipe has a cake like bottom, cottage cheese filling & cake like top… slightly sweet but not too much sugar…baked to a golden brown. But it isn’t really a cake either! You will just have to make it & decide what to call it yourself!!

Cottage Cheese Muffins

I love these cottage cheese muffins. The recipe is from over 40 years ago! Our family has been making them forever! I think the original recipe was given to my mom by a friend of hers. Sometimes I would play  majong with my mom’s group & this friend of hers would make the cheese muffins to eat at the game. I always looked forward to them & never hesitated to play there.  I think of her fondly whenever I make them.
