Easy Cheese Crescent

These are so easy and cheesy. If I don't have ricotta I will substitute cottage cheese.

1 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese (4 ounces)
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1 egg
1/3 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup sour cream or plain yogurt
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt


Heat oven to 425ยบ. Spray cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Mix cheeses, egg, buttermilk and sour cream in large bowl. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt until dough leaves sides of bowl. Divide dough into halves. Turn each half onto lightly floured surface; gently roll in flour to coat and shape into ball. Pat or roll each ball into a 9-inch circle.
Cut each circle into 6 wedges.
Roll up wedges, starting at wide end.
Place rolls, with points underneath, on cookie sheet; curve slightly.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet. Cool on wire rack. Yield: 12
