Easy Cottage Cheese Cheese Horns

These Butterhorns are ridiculous. They are melt-in-your-mouth tender, buttery, flaky, and the best part is that they only need 4 ingredients.

  • 1 cup salted butter softened
  • 1 ½ cups small curd cottage cheese 2% or better
  • 2 cup all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Cream butter, cottage cheese and salt together until combined. Stir in flour until no dry spots remain-- dough will be sticky.
  • Use a spatula to move the dough to the center of the bowl into a rough ball, cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight until the dough is manageable.
  • Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and divide into thirds. Roll each third into ball and flatten into a disk.
  • Cut each disk into 8-12 wedges using a pizza cutter. Roll each wedge starting with the widest side and place the pointed side down onto a lined baking sheet.
  • Bake at 350 Degrees for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
  • While rolls are cooking combine the butter vanilla and sugar for the glaze. Drizzle in water until it's the consistency you'd like, mixing until smooth.
  • Drizzle rolls white still warm with the glaze and serve.
