Luminous crescents are a cheesy
dough-ish delight that can be used as festival
food for fall
festivals, especially Mabon
, the autumn equinox
Cream the butter, cottage cheese, and salt in a bowl. Add flour, mixing until well-blended. Divide dough into 4 flat balls. Refrigerate until cold enough to roll, approximately 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 400ºF. Roll one ball on floured wax paper at a time, to 9- to 10-inch rounds. Sprinkle each with 1 ½ tablespoons of each cheese. Cut each into 8 wedges. Roll up toward point. Place point side down and form crescents; sprinkle with cheese. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden. Cool on racks.
Yield: 32 or so rolls, depending on size
