  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1 cup 4% cottage cheese
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons dried minced onion
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened, divided
  • 3 teaspoons dill seed, divided
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2-1/4 to 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour


  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. In a small saucepan, heat cottage cheese to 110°-115°. Add the cottage cheese, egg, sugar, onion, 1 tablespoon butter, 2 teaspoons dill seed, salt and 1 cup flour to yeast mixture. Beat until well smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a stiff dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide dough in half. Roll each portion into a 14x6-in. rectangle. Spread with 1 tablespoon butter.
  4. With the dull edge of a table knife, score dough widthwise at 2-in. intervals. Using those marks as a guideline, make score marks widthwise across dough.
  5. Fold dough accordion-style, back and forth along creased lines. Cut folded dough into 1-in. pieces. Place each piece cut side down in a greased muffin cup.
  6. Melt remaining butter; brush over dough. Sprinkle with remaining dill seed. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  7. Bake at 375° for 15-17 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to a wire rack.
