Cottage Cheese Is the New Greek Yogurt - The AtlanticAs usual, I'm pressed for time before the upcoming holiday of Shavuos, therefore my quippy and to the point blog post. It's traditional to eat dairy food on Shavuos for several reasons, which Chabad.org does a better job of explaining then me (click on link). This easy recipe is perfect for a snack or as a side dish to a big green salad on the holiday.

I used the "Cottage Cheese-Dill Bread" recipe from The Enchanted Broccoli Forest by Mollie Katzen as a jumping off point for this recipe.

non-stick cooking spray
1 cup cottage cheese (preferably whipped)

2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

Spoon into muffin cups filling 3/4 full.
