Today is the first day of FALL!! YAY!! For some it will mean cooler days are not far away. (Unless you live down under somewhere…) For some the frosts are coming, altho’ I understand Natashya has already had one. For some it will mean a little more wet weather – although Nancy and Mary Ann say they have had more than their share already. Keep your fingers crossed they don’t float completely away. Despite the fact that we in the Deep South won’t get any cool weather for at least another 2/3 weeks (maybe…) it is still time to celebrate the new season.

And those of us in TWD celebrated with Cottage Cheese Pufflets chosen by Jacque of Daisy Lane Cakes.


This was an interesting dough – made with cottage cheese. It gave a light fluffy dough with a different taste. I have to admit, I liked the dough, but have mixed feelings about the overall ‘cookie’. I only made 1/2 the recipe. Some of the bakers mentioned that their dough was wet, so I drained some cottage cheese over night in the fridge. That helped quite a bit. The dough was easy to roll out, but make sure you HEAVILY flour your board because they stick. The dough rolls out easier if you let it sit out for a couple of minutes from the fridge (You have to chlll for at least 3 hours before you begin). I filled some of mine with Strawberry preserves (Note to self: brush these with melted preserves next time) and some with Nutella. DSC04223Still not sure if I like them enough to make them again. Sorry, Jacque.
