This is one of my grandmother's specialties. The smell of the bread baking is wonderful and the taste is heaven. Everytime I make it I think of her.

I didn't realize when I picked this recipe that this was very similar to a recipe my MIL use to make. When I tasted it I was quite surprised to have found her lost recipe. I think she used more dill though. I will definitely make this again but I will double the dill.

I mixed this up using the dough cycle on the bread machine and then baked in the oven. The result was tasty, if a tad dense in texture. The cottage cheese stayed in tiny bits throughout the bread and I loved the dill addition. Thank you for sharing your family recipe! *reviewed for Spring 2007 Pick A Chef*
