How To Make Hungarian Kifli
Although Hungarian kifli takes a while to make, it is worth the wait. Lightly dusted with sugar, these cookies can be eaten at any time of day.
In large bowl, beat together butter or margarine and cottage cheese until light and fluffy. Add flour until dough forms a ball.
Divide dough into 3 equal portions. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and grease cookie sheets.
Combine egg whites, nuts, water, and ground cinnamon. Mix well and set aside.
On a floured surface roll 1 portion of dough into a 10-inch circle. Spread circle with ⅓ of the filling to within approximately ½-inch of the edge.
Cut circle into 24 pie-shaped wedges. Beginning at the outer edge roll up each wedge tightly. Place point side down on cookie sheet 1½ inches apart.
Bake for 13 to 15 minutes or until golden.
Remove to rack to cool. Repeat process with each remaining portion of dough and filling.
