Cheesecake Recipes

German Kasekuchen
Serving Size: 10

2 cup unbleached flour -- sifted
4 tablespoon butter -- no margarine
1/2 cup sugar -- granulated
1 egg -- large
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 cup cottage cheese -- 1 1/2 lbs
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup sugar -- granulated
4 eggs -- large
1/2 teaspoon lemon rind -- grated
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract -- real only
1 cup sour cream
1 cup raisins

Cooking Directions:

CRUST: In a large mixing bowl, blend all the ingredients, cutting in the
butter and working the mixture with your hands until it is well mixed and
workable. Divide the dough into 2 equal portions. Use one half to line
the bottom of a greased 9-inch springform pan, the other half to line the
sides of the pan. Either roll out the dough or press it in with your
fingers. Chill before filling. CHEESECAKE: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
F. Press the cottage cheese through a sieve. Combine the cornstarch and
the baking powder and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, combine the
cottage cheese with the sugar, eggs, lemon rind and vanilla. Beat until
very smooth. Add the dry mixture to the cheese and blend well. Stir in
the sour cream and raisins. Pour the cheese mixture into the prepared
crust and bake for one hour, or until done. The center will remain soft.
Turn off the oven and prop the door open. Allow the cake to cool to room
temperature. Serve at room temperature as well.
