    These were BEYOND easy! The night before I made Honey Almond Sticky Buns that didn't turn out well, so I was hesitant to make another bread recipe. These were DELICIOUS and easy, and they went fast! I used low fat cottage cheese and you couldn't tell, next time I may try fat free.

    I was a little skeptical about this recipe, since there was no leavening ingredient, but this turned out to be a Fan-tastic recipe! The croissants have flaky layers, an awesome cheese flavor, and then a little bit of sweetness is added with the glaze. I like to put on an orange glaze, using orange juice instead of the milk and adding a little orange zest. I highly recommend this recipe. It was easy and delicious. It's definitely added to my "keeper" recipe repertoire.
