Ingredients

  • 9" unbaked pie crust
  • 1 cup Prairie Farms cottage cheese
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 2 cups Prairie Farms milk
  • dash of cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp powdered sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 450˚.
  • Roll the pie crust out for a 9" pie pan and press into pan; set aside.
  • In a blender or food processor, blend the cottage cheese until creamy and smooth. Put it in a mixing bowl and add the flour, sugar, salt, and eggs. Mix until smooth. Add the milk and stir slowly.
  • Pour the custard into the pie shell and sprinkle with cinnamon. It has a good chance of boiling over so if you have one of those pie drip pans this is the time to use it!
  • Bake for 10 minutes, then reduce the heat to 300 and bake at least another hour. It will be jiggly in the middle, but will set as it cools.
  • Refrigerate 2-3 hours. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve.
