delicious pastry
Based on an original project in a book, Backen: Die kleine Schule. This is a very useful book if you want to learn everything about baking. I have this in my mother language (Hungarian), maybe it's available in other languages.
I make this pastry with cocos, the original recipe is without that.

    So you just put the 250gram flour, butter and cottage cheese into a dish or on a tray. Work them together.

    Wrap the folded dough into foil and put it into the fridge. The book says leave it in the fridge overnight, I think 3 hours is enough. If the butter or margarine was too light and the pastry is sticky, I put it into the freezer for 30 minutes.

Sarah, try to set lower temperature, and check the cookies in every 5 minutes. The sugar burns easily. Maybe you should work the sugar deeper in the dough.
Just keep trying! This pastry is hard to make, but it's delicious Happy
