    2       c            Cottage or Farmer Cheese
      1/2   c            Sugar -- Granulated
    5                    Eggs -- Large, Separated
      1/2   c            Milk
      1/2   ts           Lemon Rind -- Grated
    1       t            Vanilla Extract
      3/4   c            Unbleached Flour -- Sifted
      1/4   c            Confectioners' Sugar
    3       tb           Golden Raisins -- FinelyChopped
 
   Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.  Press the cheese
   through a sieve.  In a large mixing bowl, beat
   together the cheese and sugar until light.  Add the
   egg yolks, one at a time, beating well after each
   addition, then add the milk, lemon rind, and vanilla.
   Stir in the flour and blend until smooth. In another
   large mixing bowl, beat the egg whites until they form
   soft peaks, then gradually add the confectioners'
   sugar beating until they form stiff peaks.  Fold the
   whites into the cheese mixture.  Gently stir in the
   raisin bits, then pour the mixture into the prepared
   crust.  Bake for 55 minutes or until the center
   appears firm.  Let the cake cool in the oven for 15
   minutes, then allow to cool to room temperature.
