Cottage Cheese Apple Pie- Arden Cookbook

Arden Cookbook published by Arden Farms Co. a California dairy company looks like it was probably published in the early 60's but it is undated.The company had home delivery.The intro to the booklet states: "Here is a cookbook designed for you and and our western way of living. We hope that many pleasant hours of eating and fun will be yours. May it's use make life a little more enjoyable." It not surprisingly features a lot of dairy recipes. The following recipe seems like an unusual use for cottage cheese.

1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Pastry Shell
1/2 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup Arden Cream and
3/4 cup Arden Milk scalded together
1 teaspoon vanilla

Combine apples, sugar and spices. Pour into pastry-lined pie tin. Bake in 425 degree oven 15 minutes. Meanwhile add sugar and salt to eggs, combine with hot milk and cream. Add vanilla and cottage cheese. Pour over apple mixture. Continue baking in a 350 degree oven for 40 minutes, or until mixture sets and is a delicate brown.
