DIRECTIONS

  • Sift together the flour and baking powder, set aside.
  • Cream the butter in a large mixing bowl, then add the egg yolks, salt, and lemon juice, mixing well.
  • Add the dry mixture, then using your fingers, work the dough into a smooth consistency. Add the cold water as necessary to work the dough.
  • Roll the dough out on a flat surface to a thickness of 1/4-inch. Cut the dough to fit the greased bottom of a 9-inch springform pan and place the dough in the bottom. Use the excess to line the sides of the pan.
  • Chill.
  • CHEESECAKE: Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Press the cottage cheese through a sieve.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat 3 eggs and the sugar until well blended. Add the cottage cheese and beat, then stir in the lemon rind and the sour cream.
  • Separate the remaining egg, saving the yolk for another recipe. Remove crust from refrigerator and brush with the egg white.
  • Combine the pineapple and raisins in a bowl, then spread the mixture evenly on the prepared crust.
  • Pour the cheese mixture on the top of the fruit mixture.
  • Bake for 10 minutes at 450 degrees Fahrenheit, then reduce the oven to 350 degrees and bake for about another 35 minutes.
  • Cool to room temperature, then chill. Serve chilled.
