Does anyone have the frosting recipe? There was a thin layer of sour cream frosting on top.

Thank you so much for the cottage cheese cake recipe. I remember my mom making a tall pineapple cottage cheese cake at Easter one year. It was amazing. I am hoping this is something very similar. Again my thanks. I have looked and looked for this recipe.

@Iv-Lee Kane, My mother used to make a cottage cheese cheesecake too with pineapple and marachino cherries and I am also looking for that recipe.
