Cottage Cheese Pie

Makes two 9-inch pies

This cottage cheese pie recipe came from my grandmother. My family always made it with a pastry crust, which was traditional for Pennsylvania Dutch pies, but it is equally good with a graham cracker crust, so use whichever you prefer. Either way, this is an easy and delicious dessert or sweet treat.


Place cottage cheese in a strainer and let it drain for about 1 hour or until most of liquid has been discarded. Preheat oven to 425° F. Combine all ingredients except egg whites; mix well. Beat egg whites until firm. Fold into batter until smooth. Pour into pie crusts. Bake for 15 minutes then reduce oven to 350° and bake for an additional 35 to 40 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on racks, then refrigerate. The flavor intensifies if served a day after baking.
