       2 c  Cottage Cheese
       3    Eggs; Large, Separated
     1/2 c  Sugar; Granulated
     1/2 c  Sour Cream
       2 ts Cornstarch
       1 ts Lemon Peel; Grated
     1/2 c  Walnuts; Chopped, (Optional)
  
   Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.  Press the cottage
   cheese through a sieve and drain.  In a large mixing
   bowl, beat the egg yolks until light an foamy, then
   add the sugar slowly, continuing to beat until very
   light and smooth.  Add the cottage cheese to the egg
   mixture, blending well, then add the sour cream,
   cornstarch, lemon rind, and walnuts (if desired). Stir
   until all ingredients are well blended and the mixture
   is smooth. In another large mixing bowl, beat the egg
   whites until they form soft peaks, then gently fold
   them into the batter.  Pour the mixture into the
   prepared crust and bake for about 1 hour.  Cool to
   room temperature before serving.
