   CRUST: In a large mixing bowl, blend all the ingredients, cutting in the
   butter and working the mixture with your hands until it is well mixed and
   workable.  Divide the dough into 2 equal portions.  Use one half to line
   the bottom of a greased 9-inch springform pan, the other half to line the
   sides of the pan.  Either roll out the dough or press it in with your
   fingers.  Chill before filling. CHEESECAKE: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
   F.  Press the cottage cheese through a sieve. Combine the cornstarch and
   the baking powder and set aside.  In a large mixing bowl, combine the
   cottage cheese with the sugar, eggs, lemon rind and vanilla. Beat until
   very smooth.  Add the dry mixture to the cheese and blend well. Stir in the
   sour cream and raisins.  Pour the cheese mixture into the prepared crust
   and bake for one hour, or until done. The center will remain soft. Turn off
   the oven and prop the door open. Allow the cake to cool to room
   temperature.  Serve at room temperature as well.
