  3. Divide the dough into two parts – large and small. Wrap a smaller part of the dough with cling film and put it in the freezer.
  4. Spread the other (most) part of the dough with your hands on parchment over the entire bottom and sides of your mold (I have a 26×26 cm mold), making uniform sides from the dough. Then send the form with chocolate dough to the refrigerator for 30-40 minutes.
  5. During this time, prepare the curd mass. Pass the cottage cheese through a meat grinder with fine holes so that it becomes homogeneous and airy.
  6. Divide eggs into yolks and whites. Add half the sugar, vanilla sugar to the egg yolks. Beat the yolks with sugar with a mixer until whitening, about 3-4 minutes. Add whipped yolks to the curd.

  9. Take the form with the dough out of the refrigerator, distribute the curd mass over the entire form. Take out a smaller part of the chocolate dough from the freezer and grate on a coarse grater on top of the curd mass.
  10. Bake curd pie or cheesecake in an oven preheated to 180 ° C for about 60-70 minutes. The baking time and temperature must be adapted to each oven individually!
  11. Remove the finished curd pie from the oven, let it cool completely in the form.
  12. Only then carefully remove the cheesecake pie from the mold, turning it over on a board or a large plate. And most importantly, it is very important to let the finished cheesecake stand for at least 10-12 hours, or better all night.
  13. When the cheesecake stands well, it will set perfectly and acquire its own special structure and unique taste. A fragrant delicate cheesecake with raisins and dried apricots, complemented by crunchy chocolate dough, is ready. The weight of the finished product is 3.5 kg.
