Swedish cheesecake is not like American cheesecake, but it's still very yummy. Serve it with a fruit compote such as apple or lingonberry strawberry conserve (see my recipe).
- 24 ounces cottage cheese, strained
- 4 large eggs
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 1⁄4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 cup almond meal
- 3 -4 almonds, ground
- 1 tablespoon Amaretto
- Preheat oven to 425°F.
- Whip the eggs until fluffy.
- Stir in sugar, flour, and cottage cheese.
- Fold in the almonds and amaretto.
- Butter or spray a 9" x 13" casserole.
- Pour into pan. Bake for 1 hour.
- If cheesecake starts to get too brown, cover with foil.
- Best served warm with fruit compote.
This was terrific! I don't like regular cheesecake b/c it's sooo sweet (even though I like all the ingredients). When I saw that this included almonds, I was hooked. As another reviewer mentioned, this is not very sweet by itself. I served it with lingonberry/raspberry sauce. (By the way, I used finely ground almonds b/c I did not know what else to use!)<br/>made for ZWT9 Soup-a-Stars
This is different than the cheesecake I'm familiar with, but good in it's own way. I had a problem with the baking of it, though. It started to get too brown after just 1/2 hour, then I covered it with foil. But it was still getting way too brown around the edges even then, so for the last 15 minutes I turned it down to 375. The edges were too done, and I ended up cutting them off, but after that, served with Fresh Blueberry Sauce, Fresh Blueberry Sauce , it was quite good. Perhaps a lower cooking temperature would change this outcome? It comes out pretty flat, so I piled 2 pieces together to serve. Also, I whirled the cottage cheese in the food processor to give it more of a smooth texture. (I admit this was to fool my grown daughter, who still doesn't like the texture of cottage cheese. Sneaky, huh?) Although I prefer a more traditional American-style cheesecake, this has the advantage of not being super sweet and so compliments a nice sweet fruit sauce really well!
