One more Hungarian recipe for túró made possible by adapting to local ingredients. Be sure to use dry curd cottage cheese or the recipe will not work. This is a homey, rustic bar that is well worth the wait.

600 g dry curd cottage cheese (Do NOT substitute)
4 eggs
3 Tbsp + 1 tsp farina
1-1/2 Tbsp flour
1/2 cup sugar
finely grated lemon zest
2 pkg. vanilla sugar
1-1/2 Tbsp baking powder
salt to taste
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled

3/4 cup sour cream
2 tsp flour
1 egg

• In a food processor puree the eggs and the dry curds until smooth. [In a blender, puree in batches.]

• Pour the curd mixture into a large bowl.
• Add the remaining ingredients and whisk until well combined.
• Pour into a greased, parchment paper lined rectangular baking pan.

• In a small bowl combine the topping ingredients and spoon it over the base.
• Bake in a preheated 350F oven for 25-30 minutes.

• Keep in the pan and let the bar cool to room temperature.
• Cover and place in the fridge overnight.
• Slice into bars in the pan and sift icing sugar on the top.
