A NYC deli treat easily made at home.
After I’d done the savory kugel, we’d got to talking about this on my Facebook fan page and I mentioned that they are also made sweet for a dessert. People were interested, so I decided to make one. So glad I did!!
This is also perfect for fall because it includes apples. Feel free to use more apple and more raisins if you wish. Or use any fruit of your choice. If you don’t want cinnamon, just leave it out!!! Easy peasy.
The original calls for cottage cheese, so if you are a purist, substitute the cream cheese for a cup of cottage cheese. I like cream cheese so I used that. I also thought it would be richer and creamier. Not that I dislike cottage cheese, I LOVE the stuff, but in this I just prefer to use another ingredient.
