2 c Cottage Cheese
1/2 c Sugar; Granulated
9 Egg Whites; Large
1 c Swiss Cheese; Grated
6 Egg Yolks; Large
6 tb Butter; Softened

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Press the cottage cheese through a
sieve. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the cottage cheese,
Swiss cheese, butter, flour, cornstarch and sugar blending well. Add
the egg yolks, one at a time, at low speed mixing well after each
addition. In another large mixing bowl, beat the egg whites until
they form stiff peaks and fold them gently into the cheese mixture.
Pour the mixture into the prepared crust and bake for 45 minutes. The

in the oven with the door propped open, then chill.
