I am so fascinated with vintage dessert recipes. I think I’m especially intrigued by those that contain cottage cheese.

I feel like I grew up seeing some of these – but never sampled any. Here’s one that just sounded so fun – name and ingredients!

I hope you give this recipe a try and let me know what you think in the comments below.
