Coconut Lime Cottage Cheese Pie

This is a combination of a few recipes I’ve seen and a recipe that was given to me by a friend from church. The result was pretty satisfying! It has a nice blend of flavors and is cool and refreshing. I think it would be just lovely on a hot summer evening… Or as a dessert following a spicy Mexican dish!


1 cup flour

1/2 cup coconut

1/3 cup sugar

1/2 cup butter

1/2 tsp vanilla

Combine ingredients to form the crust. You can use a pastry blender, mixer or food processor.

2 eggs

3/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon lime juice

zest of one lime

Put cottage cheese in blender and blend until perfectly smooth. The trick is to blend it until it is very smooth with no lumps.

Pour into pie crust and bake at 325 for 45 minutes or until center is set.
