Cheese Cake


  • 1/2 yeast cake
  • 1/2 pint warm milk
  • 1 pound sifted flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoonful salt
  • 2 tablespoonfuls butter
  • 1/2 tablespoonful sugar


  • 1 pound fresh pot cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups thick sweet or sour cream
  • 3/4 cup sugar (or sweeten to taste)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup currants


Dissolve the yeast cake in the warm milk and add the flour, eggs, salt, butter and sugar; work this into a soft dough and set it in a warm place to rise to double its height; then roll it out 1/8 of an inch in thickness; butter 2 large cheese or pie plates, cover them with the dough, ornament the edge and let it rise again until light; mix the pot cheese with the sweet or sour cream, sugar (or sweeten to taste), eggs and currants; when this is well mixed together brush the dough over with melted butter and fill the plate with the cheese mixture; bake in a medium hot oven.
