I liked this recipe. I put the cottage cheese thru a strainer to make it smoother and added a tsp of butter flavor. Sprinkled top with turbinado sugar.

This is a great basic idea of a recipe. I made a couple of changes to fit my tastes and sensibilities. Instead of cottage cheese, I used ricotta. It still has a mild flavor, but is smoother than cottage cheese (although the recipe name might need to be changed if you do this). I also added a little cream cheese in the middle. It gives a nice flavor. I couldn't find the tart cherry preserves, so used regular cherry. Still tasted good. I am going to have to try with other flavors. I will be making these again.

The pastry part of this tart was tasteless. The butter flavored shortening did nothing to enhance the flavor and the small curd cottage cheese was difficult to incorporate into the dough leaving blobs of cottage cheese curds throughout the dough. While the dough rolled out easy enough these blobs of cottage cheese made for mis- shaped squares and difficulties in pinching the dough corners closed. Mis-shaped tarts would be no problem if they tasted good but that artificial butter flavor presented a nearly tasteless pastry. The only saving factor was the Smuckers Orchards Finest.
