Cottage Cheese Recipes
Introducing Cottage Cheese (1977, 32 pages), published by Borden Inc., was one of the booklets in their New Idea Book series.
Like some of the other booklets in the series, it cost 50 cents and had the five pre-punched holes in the left edge for insertion into a special binder.
While I like the look of the cover, with the four food dishes in sharp contrast to the white background and pretty blue lettering, I can't say I personally care much for many of the recipes found inside.
I like beets and I like cottage cheese, but mixing them together to make Pickled Pink Cottage Cheese doesn't look or sound appetizing to me.
And there's something about the curds of cottage cheese standing out amongst the other ingredients in this Molded Garden Cheese Salad that isn't very appealing either.
Perhaps that's the problem. You can see all too clearly the cottage cheese in most of the recipe photos. In my mind, I think they should blend in more.
The dessert recipes seem okay, but then, there's only a couple of photos. I'd be willing to try this Cottage Cheesecake.
Makes one 9-inch cake.
1-1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
3 cups Borden Cottage Cheese
1 cup sugar
1 cup (1/2 pint) Borden Light Cream
1/4 cup unsifted flour
3 tablespoons ReaLemon Reconstituted Lemon Juice
1 teaspoon lemon extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Borden Whipping Cream, whipped
Preheat oven to 350°. In medium bowl, combine crumbs, sugar and butter; mix well. Press on bottom of 9-inch springform pan. Chill. In blender container, blend cheese until smooth. Set aside. In large mixer bowl, beat eggs at high speed until fluffy; gradually beat in sugar. Add remaining ingredients except whipped cream and syrup. Mix well. Pour over crust. Bake 1 hour 15 minutes. Cool to room temperature. Remove sides from pan. Chill. Spread whipped cream over top; drizzle with syrup. Refrigerate leftovers.
The rear cover is quite interesting to me because it shows a whole pile of Borden products spilling out of a brown grocery sack. It lists the products too, down below the photo. I noticed that there's a typo in the list: "Diary" instead of "Dairy,"
Hope there weren't any typos in the recipes.
