Prep Time 10minutes
Cook Time 40minutes
Total Time 50minutes
2½cup/ 300g Flour
7tablespoon/ 100g Butter
1tablespoonAgave or sweetener of choice
¼cup/ 60ml Water or milk
1lb/ 500g Cottage cheese
2tablespoonAgave syrup or sweetener of choice
Optional: 50g dried fruit
Ø9½" / Ø25cm Baking tray
Preheat oven to 350°F / 180°C.
Prepare tray with parchment paper/baking paper or with some butter and flour so it will be easier to cut slices as the dough won't stick to the tray.
Put flour, baking powder, butter, egg, sweetener and the water or milk into a medium size bowl. Dough them together by hand. If the dough is too dry and flaky, pour a little bit more liquid to the mixture. If it still sticks to the bowl or onto our hands after 5 minutes of kneading then add a bit of more flour to it.
Divide the dough into two: approximately ⅓ and ⅔ pieces.
Form the bigger dough into a disk, the size of the tray.
Put it into the tray pressing the pastry to the sides of the tray.
Make the filling. Put cottage cheese, eggs, agave syrup, vanilla essence and dried fruit into a medium size mixing bowl and mix them well.
Pour it on top of the pastry into the tray.
Roll out the other piece of the pastry and cut it into stripes.
Place stripes on top of the cottage cheese filling like a lattice.
Brush top with egg yolk.
Put it into the preheated oven for 40 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
When it is baked leave it to cool down before serving it.
