  • "Smear Case" ????
    Looking for a recipe for "smear case" (how i spelL it =0) I`m sure it`s a PA.Dutch or Mennonite recipe. I also know its actually spelled in german. When i was younger (eons ago..LOL) My Grandfather would buy it at the central market. We would put it on top of toast with apple butter.So would love this again. Any help would be appreciated.

    Check out this site. It has to do with cottage cheese. Don't really know that much about it, but I remember hearing about it.

    Schmierkase or “Smearcase.”

    Place ½ gallon sour milk (not buttermilk) in a enamel double boiler and heat to lukewarm (not more than 85 degrees) until it becomes thick clabber. Let stand over the lukewarm water until curds and whey separate, then pour into a colander and drain off the whey. When well drained pour inot cartons, add one tablespoon thick sweet cream, cover and use as regular packaged cottage cheese.

    My dh was talking about his grandma (German) fixing a cake that sounded like this name. It was supposedly a cheesecake with a crustlike bottom to it.

    This is not the way the "old-timers" did it but I think it's a good copy. Talking about it makes me hungry for it again. I'll have to try it for myself again. My Dh loves this.

    2-2/3 c. milk
    1/2 c. butter
    1/2 t. salt
    40 slices White American cheese
    1/2 t. baking soda
    Heat milk to almost boiling. Add butter soda and salt. Add cheese and stir until cheese is melted.

    I'm trying to re-create a recipe that was made by my aunt. It is called smearcase. I've found a few recipes for smearcase cake or pie but this is more like a pudding. I know smearcase is german for cottage cheese and this recipe has cottage cheese in it. Anyone have any idea??-
