Sorry but I think this recipe is way off. Not sure when or where you add the butter or is that just a typo and 2 cups of milk makes the filling just way to runny. Not all of it would fit into the pie pan and after 45 minutes of cooking the filling is just like water with a small skin on top.

My DH asked me to make a Cottage Cheese pie. I had never heard of it. So I tried your recipe. It is very good. The first time I made it as written. Then the second time...I wanted something I added some lemon and orange zest, dried cranberries and pecans and it was just right. Thank you for posting this keeper.
