5 pounds cottage cheese
2 pounds sour cream
3/4 pound butter
1 vanilla pod
1,5 cups sugar
Mix all ingredients carefully, put them through the sieve. Cook, stirring frequently, until the bubbles appear.
Line a pasha form with gauze, pour in the mixture and set it on a shallow pan or dish so that the extra moisture could drain. If you do not have a pasha form, use coffee filters, and set them on a colander to drain the extra moisture. This will affect the look but not the taste!
Put it in a fridge for at least 12 hours.
