Cottage Cheese Cookie dough

Cottage cheese can be a unique addition to cookie dough, providing moisture and a slight tanginess. Here’s a simple recipe for cottage cheese cookie dough:


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


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the well-drained cottage cheese and vanilla extract to the creamed mixture. Mix until well combined.
  4. Beat in the eggs one at a time, ensuring each is fully incorporated before adding the next.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  6. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until a dough forms.
  7. Fold in the chocolate chips or chunks until evenly distributed throughout the dough.
  8. Drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving enough space between each cookie.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
  10. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  11. Enjoy your unique cottage cheese cookie dough cookies!

Feel free to customize the recipe by adding nuts, dried fruit, or other mix-ins of your choice. Keep in mind that the cottage cheese provides moisture, so the texture of these cookies may be a bit different from traditional cookie recipes.
