  • 9" pie plate


  • 1 cup dry cottage cheese also called pressed. Break apart with a fork and crumble to small pieces. (Cosco sometimes carries it.)
  • 1 cup 2 % milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • ½ cup raisins these can be omitted or currants can be substituted
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • 1 pinch cinnamon
  • 1 -9" unbaked pie shell for a great recipe for pie pastry check out the Busy Life Pie Crust at


  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Add the pie crust to your 9" pie plate and set aside.
  • To a large bowl, add the cottage cheese. Mash it slightly with a fork.
  • Stir in the eggs, sugar, milk and lemon juice. Mix well with a whisk. Add the raisins.
  • Pour into the pie shell and using a spoon distribute the raisins evenly on the bottom of the pie. Bake at 375°F for 50 minutes. (Cover loosely with foil after 30 minutes of baking to prevent the crust edges from burning.)
  • Cool for at least 15 minutes before serving. Serve warm or cold. Refrigerate leftovers and reheat in microwave for 1 minute on high, if desired.



Savoury Cottage Cheese Pie With Sundried Tomatoes
To make a savoury version of this pie, substitute the raisins, sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon with  ⅔ cup of sundried tomatoes,  1 tsp of dried oregano, ¼ tsp of ground black pepper, ½ tsp of salt and a pinch of paprika. I make my own oven made sundried tomatoes but you can use oil packed store bought. Just pat the oil off with a towel before chopping.
