Love recipes with cottage cheese for their delicious taste. This one is not exception.
I am using a Farmer’s cottage cheese, it is not that fluid. If you will use the American cottage cheese, you will need to start preparing it the night before. Place the cheese on the cheese cloth, tight it well and put over on colander to drain the access of liquid from it. The harder cheese you get is better.

Keep butter in refrigerator before using it.

In separate bowl combine Farmer cheese, sugar and eggs, sour cream.  ATTENTION: if you’re using American style cottage cheese, you may not need the sour cream, depending of how hard or soft your cheese is.  Mix it well to an even consistency. Then carefully fold chunks of pineapples into a cheese mixture.

Spread a half of crumbs on the bottom of a greased 9.5×6 in (or 7x7in) baking dish. Fold in cheese filling on top of crumbs, to cover them. Then spread  remaining crumbs over the cheese filling.

Bake dish in the oven at 350F (or 180 C), for about 40-60 min, or until golden brown, depending on your oven.
Check the readiness with the wooden stick.
