Dill and cottage cheese squares – Kapros-túrós lepény

by | Aug 23, 2014 | Desserts

This dill and cottage cheese pie was my grandma’s favorite dessert. It’s a real peacetime recipe from her hand-written cookbook. In fact, it can be regarded as a distant relative of the English cheesecake. The cottage cheese filling is soft and creamy, and the dill makes it fresh.

Hungarian cottage cheese

This is what Hungarian túró looks like

You often ask me what kind of cottage cheese (or curd cheese or farmer's cheese - call it what you want) I use in the recipes. In Hungary the store-bought cottage cheese is dry and crumbly as you can see in the picture. So if a recipe calls for túró, I mean this type. If you can't obtain túró, you can try to make your own from whole milk. Click on the link below.

Metric system vs cup

In Hungary metric units are in use, all the recipes on this website are based on this system, so a kitchen scale is necessary. Since I’m not familiar with cup as a measurement unit, I convert grams to cups by using an online converter. The values in brackets, therefore, are only approximate volumes, so, please, double-check them before you start cooking.
