A lovely dessert -- not too sweet and very creamy. I didn't have any caster sugar so I just whizzed granulated white sugar around the food processor until it was fine enough. I have one large heart shaped silicone mold which I lined with cheesecloth that left a nice basket-weave pattern on the cheese. We had these with both whole strawberries and strawberry coulis, the red was a gorgeous contrast against the white.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Push the cottage cheese though a sieve into a bowl, add the sugar and mix well.
  2. Whip the double cream until stiff and then add the lemon juice, add this mixture to the cottage cheese mixture.
  3. If you are serving this in the mould(s), no lining is necessary, but if you want to turn these out of the mould(s) then line the mould with muslin.
  4. Gently fold the stiffly whisked egg whites into the cheese mixture,then spoon completed mixture into several small or 1 large mould.
  5. Refrigerate overnight to drain.
  6. Use the muslin to support the dessert as you turn it out and carefully peel off.
  7. Serve with strawberries, raspberries and cream.
