    Place the cottage cheese in a sieve and drain.  In a
   small bowl, mix the flour, salt, and sugar.  Set
   aside. In a large bowl, combine the cottage cheese
   with the eggs, butter, and vanilla.  Mix until well
   blended and smooth.  Add the dry mixture and blend
   well.  Pour the mixture into the prepared crust and
   set the cake aside.  Prepare the topping by sifting
   the flour, sugar, and cinnamon together.  Add the
   brown sugar and blend well.  Pour the melted butter
   over the topping mix and immediately stir with a fork
   to form small crumbs.  Sprinkle the topping mix over
   the surface of the cake and bake the cake for 50
   minutes, or until done.  Cool to room temperature and
   then chill.
