   The cheesecake you are referring to is quarkkuchen. To
   the best of my knowledge, the closest thing to “quark”
   would be pureed or strained cottage cheese.
     Here’s a recipe for you. Prepare dough and with it
   line bottom and sides of a greased cake tin. Strain
   cottage cheese, stir in cream. Add sugar, eggs, grated
   lemon peel, vanilla, raisins and cornstarch. Mix flour
   and baking soda and add. Pour batter into dough
   lining, top with grated almonds and bake in 375F oven
   for about 1 hour.  When done, cool cake in a warm
   place.  Do not chill. CRUST; Mix all ingredients and,
   on a bread board, knead to a supple dough.  Roll out
   and use as instructed in above recipe. In view of the
   large butter content of this dough, it should be
   thoroughly cooled before baking.
