  • For the crust:
    • 700 g flour
    • 2 tsp baking powder
    • 200 g sugar
    • 2 pinches of salt
    • 10 g vanilla sugar
    • 240 g cold butter
    • 4 tbsp cold water
    • 2 eggs
  • For the filling:
    • 800 g cottage cheese (5-9% fat)
    • 4 eggs
    • 2 tbsp sour cream
    • 3 tbsp semolina (or substitute with cornstarch)
    • 150 g sugar
    • 10 g vanilla sugar
    • Peaches, sliced (or any other fruit or berry of your choice)
  1. Prepare the dough: Sift the flour and mix with baking powder. Add salt, sugar, and vanilla sugar. Cut in the cold butter using a fork or your hands until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center, add eggs, and blend until a dough forms, gradually adding water as needed to bring the dough together.
  2. Chill the dough: Divide the dough into thirds. Wrap two pieces and freeze for 40-60 minutes.
  3. Prepare the base: Grate the larger portion of dough directly into a parchment-lined baking dish, creating an even layer.
  4. Make the filling: Blend the cottage cheese, eggs, sour cream, semolina (or cornstarch), sugar, and vanilla sugar until smooth using an immersion blender. Pour this mixture over the grated dough. Arrange peach slices on top of the filling.
  5. Add the top layer: Grate the remaining frozen dough over the peaches. Optionally, sprinkle with almond petals for extra flavor and texture.
  6. Bake: Preheat your oven to 180°C (356°F) and bake the pie for about 40 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the filling is set.
  7. Cool and garnish: Let the pie cool before dusting with powdered sugar.

Enjoy your slice of Peach Delight Pie, a refreshing and delightful dessert that’s perfect for any occasion, offering a taste of summer with every bite!
