Each time I visit Hungary I get a big bunch of cottage cheese, because here it is not available in this consistence. Luckily you can freeze it, so that is why I always have it on stock. Of course you find cottage cheese here in the stores but it is not like the Hungarian at all, and cream cheese is not a substitute to me. Two different worlds! I love it in combination with fruits and that inspired me to create this strawberry dessert. It is kind of an unoffical charlotte, as it is without sponge.
250 g cottage cheese
350 ml milk
3 egg yolks
200 g sugar
1 vanilla pod
150 ml condensed milk
125 g butter
500 g strawberries
Bring milk to boil together with the vanilla pot, seeds scratched out. Whisk egg yolks with sugar and flour. When milk starts to boil stir in egg yolk mixture and set aside. Let it cool. Add
cottage cheese. Whisk in butter. Put foil in a small bowl and decorte with strawberry slices.
Add cottage cheese cream and let it cool over night.
