Super Sugarless Strudel

1/2 lb. softened sweet butter
8 oz. low fat cottage cheese
3 cups plus 2 tablespoons flour
3/4 chopped walnuts
1 10 oz. jar of preserves sweeten-
ed with fruit juices (either Polaner
or Sorrell Ridge)

Mix the butter and cottage cheese
together, then add the flour and mix
them all together to form a dough. Knead
this dough and separate into 4 balls. With
a rolling pin, roll the dough out into an
oblong shape about 1/8" thick. Across
the width of dough closest to you, spread
the preserves and chopped walnuts. Lift the
dough up slightly with your hands and roll
it over a few times so that it resembles a
long hot dog, then trim the remaining strip
of dough, cutting from left to right. Cut
the hot dog shape that you created into
1 1/2" pieces and place them on an ungreased
cookie sheet.

You'll have some dough left over, so repeat
the same process doing the same
with the remaining balls of dough.

Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 45
to 50 minutes till golden brown.
You will absolutely love them!
