I always love recipes that have been given to me! Having lived in a german town in Texas for over 25 years, I have collected lots of hand me down recipes, and of course I figure out how to mingle fresh herbs into the mix.
This recipe is so easy to do, you could easily make it for yourself or friends and family on the spur of the moment or make it ahead, put it in the frig and set it out to get to room temperature for use a few days later. Here it is:
Old Thyme Cook Cheese (Kock Kase)
1 pound cottage cheese (large or small curd)
1 teaspoon soda
3 tablespoons flour
3 tablespoons butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon fresh minced rosemary
1 tablespoon fresh minced basil
1 teaspoon fresh thyme
Mix all ingredients in a heavy saucepan, and place in a warm air tight area for one hour.
Cook over medium heat for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Can be served at once, or cooled down and served later. Great with crackers or homemade bread.
