Last Saturday we had this delicious pie at my friend’s mom’s house and she kindly gave me the recipe. It was so yummy that I had to share it.
A note on quark: Quark is a german specialty dairy product (it also translates as curd cheese). It is like cream cheese, just fluffier and tastes a bit sour. If you can’t buy it where you live you could use any other cream cheese, though the pie’s texture might be a little stiffer then and I would recommend using less sugar. It is also pretty easy to make at home I’ve read.
Lu’s Quark Cherry Pie
1 Packet (ca. 50g) Instant Pudding Mix (or Custard Powder)
1 tsp baking powder
3 tblsp cream of wheat
juice of one lemon
Stir together the eggs, sugar and butter and add the custard powder and baking powder. Then stir in the cream of wheat, lemon juice and quark.
Pour off the juice from the cherries and place cherries in a casserole dish. Spoon the quark mix on top and bake at 170°C for about 70 min. (until golden brown on top).
The pie will be very soft and has to be spooned out of the dish. Enjoy!
