Before I had a camera or even this blog I had made these dinner buns many many times. It is another recipe from my old little black handwritten recipe binder, splattered and used for recipes just like this on, favorites made many times over.

These are simple, easy and delicious. My three favorite categories! You know the reason folks love to cook, is because not every recipe they make and enjoy is difficult. Let's be honest here, if every meal was a big challenge or difficult, the fun would disappear. Learning about and enjoying these simple, easy and delicious recipes is what begins the journey to other more challenging recipes and fun projects.

If you are a bread lover, fresh bread can turn the most humble dish into dinner. And fortunately, yeast doughs are not fussy at all and very forgiving. Yeast dough will wait in the refrigerator, to be baked right before dinner. And of course that wonderful aroma will call the family to dinner, you won't have to. But enough about my love of bread lets make some dinner buns.

By the way, this is a wonderful recipe to make with family both young and old. That way everyone can help make the meal special. Looking for a whole wheat version, you may see that recipe right here.

Cottage Cheese dinner buns
source unknown, in my little black binder
350 degree, for baking

1 package (1 scant T) yeast
1/4 c warm water
1/4 c sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 t salt
1/4 t baking soda
1 c cottage cheese
2 3/4 c flour - divided

In a large mixing bowl, dissolve the yeast in the water, add the sugar, stir.

Gently warm the cottage cheese,

and add to the yeast mixture along with the egg, salt, soda and 2 1/2 c of the flour.

Slowly blend the flour into the wet ingredients, then mix well until the mixture leaves the sides of the bowl, adding last 1/4 c flour if needed. Scrape down the sides of the bowl, when completely mixed. NOTE: dough is sticky.

Cover and let rise until double in bulk.

 The rising will take about 1 hour.

Stir/punch down dough. Spoon into 12 prepared muffin cups.

Cover and let rise for 30 minutes.

If not ready to bake after 30 minutes, remove the towel. Otherwise, it may stick to the dough. If you need/want to store the dough, oil the tops lightly and cover loosely with wax paper and then a towel, put in the refrigerator.

When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350, bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and done. Makes 12 buns.
