English Cheese Pie


Be sure to read up on Information on the First Thanksgiving. This was a celebration of the first harvest had by Pilgrims in the US, and was a festival with the 50 or so Pilgrims plus just under 100 native Americans. The food therefore was a mix of what the English settlers knew about and/or brought with them, plus what the native Americans brought in to the feast.

The English were huge fans of cheese in general, and cheese pie in particular.

1/4 cup cream sherry
1 cup heavy cream 3 eggs
2 egg yolks
1/3 cup sugar
2 Tbsp rosewater
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup Cottage Cheese
1/4 cup dry currants

Simmer the sherry and cream until they are at a gentle boil, stirring constnatly. Remove from heat. In one bowl, blend the egg yolks, eggs, sugar, rosewater, cinnamon and nutmeg until soft peaks form. Add this into the sherry-cream. Now press the cottage cheese through a sieve and blend this into the mixture. Stir in currants. Put into a crust.

Cook at 350F for 30 minutes, then chill. Sprinkle with cinnamon and serve.
