Cottage Cheese Pie

Another untried recipe from More With Less (a Mennonite cookbook), but sounds similar to Refrigerator Cheesecake which Betsy's family likes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Have ready 1 unbaked 9-inch pastry or graham cracker pie shell.

Combine with mixer or blender:
2 egg yolks (reserve whites)
1 1/2 cups cottage cheese
1/3 cup sugar or honey
2 tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons lemon juice
grated lemon rind

Beat until stiff but not dry:
2 egg whites

Fold (egg whites) into cheese mixture. Pour into unbaked pie shell and sprinkle top with:
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Bake 1 hour (at 350 degrees), or until filling is almost firm in center. A slightly soft center will set as pie cools. Top with a fruit sauce if desired.

Serves 6-8.
