Sweet Cheese Pie

ingredients

serves 6
8 oz (225 g) cottage cheese
1/2 cup (8 tbsp) 100 g caster sugar (superfine granulated)
1/2 stick (2 oz) 50 g butter, softened
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup (1/4 lb) 125 g plain flour
3 tbsp (60 ml) milk
grated rind of 1 lemon
376 g (13 1/4 oz) can crushed pineapple, drained
8 oz (225 g) puff pastry
beaten egg white to glaze

method

1. Sieve the cottage cheese. Beat in the sugar and softened butter. Gradually beat in the eggs.

2. Sift the flour and fold into the cottage cheese mixture with the milk. Stir in the grated lemon rind and crushed pineapple.

3. Divide the pastry into two pieces, one slightly larger than the other.

4. Roll out the larger piece and use to line a 1.1-litre (2-pint) pie dish.

5. Spoon in the cheese filling. Roll out the remaining pastry and any trimmings and cut into thin strips. Use to make a lattice top for the pie, leaving no filling showing.

6. Brush with beaten egg white and dust with caster sugar.

7. Bake in the oven at 220°C (425f) mark 7 for about 35 minutes until the pastry is risen and golden, and the filling set. Cover if the pie starts to brown too fast.

8. Serve warm.
