  • 2 pounds cottage cheese
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  • Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a 13 x 9 inch pan.
  • Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl and beat with a hand mixer on medium-high speed until light and fluffy.
  • Pour into the pan and bake for 50-60 minutes, or until lightly browned on the edges and nearly set (it will still jiggle slightly in the center).
  • Cool to room temperature, then chill in the refrigerator before serving.
