Mix well and knead till smooth. Let rise. Make cheese topping. Mix together the dry cottage cheese, 1/2 c. sugar, 2 Tbsp. flour the salt and 1 egg. Mix well. After dough rises, put into a greased pan and top with cottage cheese mix. Let rise 30 min. Before placing in oven, brush the top of the cheese mix with the remaining beaten egg. Bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour. Mary Says: This is a*must* on Christmas Eve. It is delicious and beautiful, as well. Serving Ideas : Great as a breakfast bread or possibly as a dessert. NOTES : I have simplified this recipe by using a food processor. I proof the year with the sugar and lukewarm water. Then I add in all the other bread ingredients to the workbowl with the yeast mix. I process till well mixed, adding flour till the dough forms a ball and cleans the sides of the workbowl. I then let it rise in a bowl, punch down and form into a loaf, then place it in a greased pan. Add in the cheese topping and proceed to the end of the recipe.
