People think "Cottage Cheese Pie" sounds weird -- but this is always the first thing to get completely eaten at our lady's breakfast on Saturday.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Checkers for this recipe.

The list of ingredients doesn't include butter, yet the instructions do. I searched for and found an identical recipe called Amish Cottage Cheese Pie and it calls for 3 tablespoons of melted butter added to the custard mixture, before the egg whites, so do make a note of that.

My only modifications were to omit the lemon extract and instead add grated lemon zest, because I had that on hand, and, I used a 3 oz package of flan mix, because my store doesn't carry the custard mix anymore.

Also, this makes a VERY SWEET custard. I'd add half the amount of sugar called for, and then add more to taste. I think I could have been been just as happy with only 1/2 cup at most.

Very tasty! Kid Friendly. It tastes like a rice pudding pie, basically.
