   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3      c             all-purpose flour
    1      tsp           salt
    1      tbsp          sugar
    5      tsp           baking powder
      1/4  c             butter or margarine
    2                    eggs
                         Cottage cheese  ( 1 1/2 to 2 1/4 c ) -- see note
 
 Sift together the flour, salt, sugar, and baking powder.  Cut in butter or marg
 arine until
 like coarse crumbs.
 
 Make a well in centre of the dry ingredients and place in it the eggs and 1 1/2
  cups of
 cottage cheese.  Work the whole together, just enough to bind, using more cotta
 ge 
 cheese if necessary.  Turn onto a lightly floured board and knead very gently a
  few times.
 Pat to a 1 inch thickness.
 
 Cut into biscuit shapes and place on a greased baking sheet, or divide dough in
  half and 
 pat each half into a greased 8 inch round cake pan.  Bake at 450 F for 12 to 16
  minutes
 or until browned.  Makes 18 to 20 biscuits 2 inches in diameter.
 
 Note: 
 You can use any kind of creamed cottage cheese but the amount will depend on th
 e 
 moisture content of the cheese.  It will vary from about 1 1/2 cups to 2 1/4 cu
 ps or even
 slightly more to make a dough that will hold together.
