A nice "autumn cheesecake." If desired, garnish the cheesecake with frosted grapes.

INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 9 inch springform pan with olive oil, and dust with zwieback crumbs.
  • In a large bowl, combine remaining zwieback crumbs, 1/4 cup white sugar, almonds, and olive oil. Press into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake for 7 minutes. Cool.
  • Process cottage cheese in food processor until smooth, or press through a fine sieve. In a mixing bowl, combine cottage cheese, 1/2 cup white sugar, flour, salt, egg yolks, sour cream, lemon peel and juice. Beat at medium speed, scraping the bowl often, until smooth and well blended.
  • In a clean mixing bowl, beat the egg whites until foamy. Gradually add the remaining 1/4 cup white sugar, and continue beating until stiff peaks form. Fold into the cheese mixture. Fold in the raisins. Spread batter evenly into the crust.
