RECIPE:   One of the excellent cooks in our Club is Helen Tebbets, and this week she is sharing one of her recipes with us.

            COTTAGE CHEESE ROLLS
      Dough:
     Scald 2 cups milk (cool to lukewarm)
     Add 14 tbs. sugar
     Add 3/4 cake yeast or 2 pkg. dry yeast
     Beat in 2 cups flour until smooth.
     Set aside for 45 minutes.

     Cheese Mixture:
     3 lbs. cottage cheese
     2 cups sugar
     2 eggs
     2 - 8 oz. pkgs. cream cheese
     3/4 cup tapioca
     1 tsp. vanilla

     3rd Step:
     6 cups flour
     1 lb. oleo
     Mix like pie dough.

Then add 4 eggs to the first mixture and mix until smooth.   Let rest 1-1/4 hours.   Make 8 rolls.   Roll each into rectangular shape.   Place 1 cup filling in center.   Cut slits in the side.   Braid over the filling.   Bake at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes.

Thanks, Helen, for sharing this recipe with us.   Enjoy!

THOUGHTS:   Life at the Club is becoming more quiet, but there are still lots of us here.   Last Saturday there were many at the Clubhouse for coffee and the meeting.   It can be a good chance for us to become acquainted with other residents.   We do have many new residents - this is a good time to visit with them.       --SJB
