    Cottage cheese and oil
    Pastry (1)
1  oz  (30g) soft butter or marg.
2  tb  (heaping) sugar
1  pk  Vanillin sugar
1 3/4  oz  (50g) currants (washed and

1 3/4  oz  (50g) almonds (blanched

roll out the pastry to a rectangle 14X18 (45X35cm) and brush with the fat. FOR THE FILLING: mix together the filling ingredients and distribute evenly over the pastry. Starting from the shorter side, roll up like a swiss roll. Then use a sharp knofe to cut off slices about 1 1/4 in. (1 1/2cm) thick. Lay these on a greased baking sheet and flatten slightly. OVEN: preheat for 5 min. at very hot BAKING TIME: 15-20 minutes FOR THE ICING: sieve the icing sugar and blend with as much of the water as will give a good coating consistency. Ice the currant wheels while still hot
