Cooking

1. Cooking shortbread dough. In a deep bowl, add cold butter to the flour, cut into pieces, or grated through a coarse grater. Salt and knead the ingredients with your hands until smooth. Roll the dough into a ball and leave it in the refrigerator under a towel for 10 minutes.

3. Gradually add cottage cheese and knead until smooth. It is optimal to choose not wet cottage cheese, or before adding it to the filling, squeeze out excess moisture from it. Thanks to this technique, the cake will not be too watery and will retain its shape when sliced.

5. Line the form with baking paper or grease the edges with butter. The diameter of my mold is 26 cm, if you want the cake to turn out tall, then you should take a smaller mold size. We put the dough on the bottom and distribute it with our fingers, forming the sides.
