cottage cheese cookie dough recipe

Preparation Time: 15 minutes Yield: Approximately 24 cookies


  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup cottage cheese, well-drained
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips or chunks
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Creaming the Butter and Sugar:
    • In a large mixing bowl, cream together softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Incorporate Wet Ingredients:
    • Add in the well-drained cottage cheese, egg, and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined.
  4. Sift Dry Ingredients:
    • In a separate bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  5. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:
    • Gradually add the sifted dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing just until the dough comes together.
  6. Fold in Mix-Ins:
    • Gently fold in the chocolate chips or chunks and chopped nuts (if using) until evenly distributed throughout the dough.
  7. Shape Cookies:
    • Drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving space between each cookie.
  8. Bake:
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden. The centers may seem slightly undercooked but will firm up as they cool.
  9. Cooling:
    • Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
