Holiday rugelach

2/3 c small-curd cottage cheese
2/3 c earth balance, softened
1 1/3 c flour

Mix together thoroughly to form a soft dough. Split into 2 balls, wrap each in plastic wrap, and put in the freezer for 10 minutes.

6 candy cane joe-joes (Trader Joe's oreos)
1/3 c white chocolate chips
2 T butter

Remove minty insides from cookie outsides. Put the cookies in the food processor and process into crumbs. Add white chocolate chips and process, then add cookie insides and butter and process some more. The final product should have the consistency of graham cracker crumbs for pie crust, or even a bit more cohesive.

Preheat oven to 350F and line two baking sheets with parchment. Remove each ball of dough from the freezer and roll out on a floured surface into a 10" circle. Distribute the filling evenly on the dough circles, pressing the filling into the dough a bit so it'll all stick together. Cut each circle into 12 or 16 wedges, roll each wedge into a cookie (edge to center), and place each cookie on a sheet.

1 egg
1 T milk
pink sprinkles

Beat together egg and milk to make a glaze, and brush on the tops of the cookies. Sprinkle with sprinkles and bake for 25 min.
