Turos pite, or cottage cheese pie, is a delicious Hungarian dessert. Many recipes circulate, but this one is my favorite.
0.5 package baking powder (0.5 tsp?)
0.5 packet vanilla sugar
1 pinch salt
1 egg yolk
50mL sour cream
250g farmers cheese
1 packet vanilla sugar
1 egg yolk
200mL sour cream
1 tsp freshly grated lemon zest
2 egg whites
Mix the dry ingredients for the dough, then add the wet ones and knead together. I usually soften the butter in the microwave. Add more sour cream if necessary.
Form into two balls and refrigerate. Allow to rest for 30 minutes.
Mix the ingredients for the filling until smooth, with the exception of the egg whites. Beat those into a foam and add at the end.
Roll out the dough balls, and lay down one into a 9x11 inch baking shape lined with one piece of baking paper, that hangs over on the sides. This will allow removal of the cake later.
Pour in the filling and cover with the other piece. Puncture with a fork and bake at 350F until light brown. Do not overbake.
Cool in the shape, then remove onto a board and cool in the fridge before slicing. Dust with icing sugar before serving.
