  Cottage cheese pie

Baking pan: 34 x 24 cm | 8-10 portions


500g cottage cheese

160g sugar

1 egg


Pie sheets:

400g flour (+50g flour if the dough is too soggy)

1 sachet baking powder

2 medium eggs

120g sour cream

100g butter (melted)

1 drop of vanilla extract


+ powdered sugar for serving

+ butter and flour for the baking pan


At Easter time, we never baked pască (=a round cottage cheese and flour pie with raisins). Actually, this pie was our pască, year after year... and my Mom would always bake it. J


First, make the filling by mixing the cottage cheese, the sugar, and the egg and let it sit in the fridge for 1 hour.

Make the filling

To make the pie sheets, prepare the dough from flour, baking powder, sour cream, eggs, butter, and vanilla extract; let it sit in the fridge, as well, for 1 hour. Then, take it out, let it warm up and divide it into two.

Make the dough

Roll out the first piece and place it in the buttered and floured baking pan. Then, spread the filling. Roll out the second sheet and place it on top of the filling.  

Sheet - filling - sheet

Bake in the preheated oven, at 190°C, for 25-30 minutes.


After taking the pie out of the oven, let it cool and then cut it into squares and sprinkle powdered sugar on them before serving. They taste like childhood to me.
