"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Helene Wein


1 lb fine noodles (Pennsylvania Dutch)
10 X-LG eggs
1 pt. sour cream
1 lb cottage cheese
lb butter (slightly salted and room temperature)
8 oz cream cheese (room temperature)
1 tsp vanilla
1 cups sugar
cup golden raisins (soaked in brandy)

Boil the noodles till tender following directions on the package. (Also, note that they are selling smaller packages of noodles, so either add more to make a pound, or adjust your other ingredients down to accommodate for less noodles.)
Cool in strainer with cold water to stop cooking process and to have cool to add to your mixture.
Preheat the oven to 400.
Melt a 1/4 lb of butter into the pan to coat bottom and remove from oven once melted.
In a big bowl - mash together (I use a potato masher) cream cheese, beaten eggs, cottage cheese, sour cream, vanilla. Add the noodles and raisins with the rest of the ingredients.
In a 13 X 10 pan, Bake at 400 for 1 hour, then turn down to 375 for the last 15 minutes. Bake in Middle rack.
Let set before cutting.

I've enjoyed making this several times myself, but, need to warn you that it is soooo delicious it sometimes oozes over with yumminess!!! Use the correct size pan and do not overfill. (If in doubt make a separate little one in another pan or use a cookie sheet underneath to catch any spills.
I may have had a little butter fire in the oven from this one - so no hazards please. Not that I would ever say to cut back on the butter. This may be one of my TOP 3 recipes ever!!! Keep an eye on it!!!
