Cooking cottage cheese and lemon pie:
Step 1: prepare the lemon zest.
If you do not have lemon zest, then it is very simple to prepare this ingredient yourself. For this recipe, we need a zest of two lemons. First, rinse the fruit, it is best to rub it with a sponge or soft brush. Then, using a grater, peel off the bright yellow layer of the peel. This is the zest we need. Do not get carried away, do not rub the lemon to the pulp, since we do not need the pale yellow part, it will give a bitter aftertaste. Set the lemons cleaned from the zest and use as usual, or to prepare another dish.
Step 2: knead the dough.
Take out the butter for 5-10 minutes before cooking, so that it becomes softer and slightly melted. Mix the butter soaked at room temperature with sugar with a fork, and then add the lemon zest, salt, milk, regular and vanilla sugar to this mixture. Mix everything in a mixer until thick and homogeneous. All sugar should dissolve. Now, sifting through a strainer, begin to gradually add wheat flour, so the finished cake will be more magnificent. At the end, add the cottage cheese and mix everything properly again, you should get a very thick, but not cool dough.
Step 3: bake the cake.
Start to preheat the oven, you need to bake this cake when 180-190 degreesTherefore, it is precisely this temperature regime that needs to be set. In the meantime, our oven is heating to the optimum state, grease the baking dish with oil, not forgetting about the edges. Transfer the dough from the mixer bowl onto a greased baking sheet and flatten the top with a tablespoon or spatula. Put the cake bake in the oven on 40-50 minutes. As soon as the specified time has passed, your curd-lemon dessert will be ready, let it rest and cool 10-15 minutes and start serving. Do not remove the cake from the mold until it cools.
Step 4: serve the cottage cheese and lemon pie.
