Russian Crow’s Feet

You can watch the video here.

  • 7 oz. farmers’ cheese crumbled in bowl
  • 6 tbsps very soft, almost melted butter
  • 1-½ cups flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Mix cheese and butter on mixer and then add flour, salt and vanilla and blend till almost comes together.  Turn out onto a board and knead it till it forms a ball. Wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour or overnight.

Divide dough into 12 pieces.  Roll each piece into a 6-7” circle (cut with bowl to make them all the same size if you wish).

Have a dish of cinnamon sugar ready as well as some melted butter.

LIGHTLY brush the circle with melted butter on one side only.  Put the circle face down, into the sugar and press down to coat with sugar.  Remove and fold in half. Brush one side with butter and then press into sugar and fold in half again.  Brush with butter, press into sugar and fold in half again to form a triangle.  Put on a prepared sheet.

Brush the tops lightly with butter and top with coarse sugar

Bake at 375 for about 20-25 minutes or until golden.  Remove and cool.

NOTE:  if you made these smaller, like cookie size, they would be duck’s feet.
