A delicious and original way to use our cottage cheese.
18-20 digestive biscuits
1/2 pack of orange jelly
Grated rind and juice of 1 orange
2 eggs (separated)
1 tbsp. sugar
1 tin mandarin segments in natural juices (net weight 298g, drained weight 175g)
1/2 cup (120ml) juice from tinned mandarin segments
Crush the biscuits and mix with the melted butter.
Press into a 10" flan dish and bake in a moderate oven for about 8 mins. Leave to cool.
Melt the jelly, orange rind and juice plus the mandarin juice over a gentle heat.
Blend the egg yolks with the sugar, add to the hot jelly mix and stir over a low heat until the mixture thickens.
Let the jelly mixture cool slightly.
Sieve the cottage cheese.
Whip up the double cream.
Add cream and cottage cheese to the melted jelly.
Whip the egg whites until stiff then fold into the mixture.
Pour the mixture into the flan dish on top of the cooled biscuit base. Chill until set.
Arrange mandarin segments generously over the top.
