INGREDIENTS

  • 250 g (8 oz) low-fat cottage cheese, sieved
  • Artificial sweetener, to taste
  • 150 ml (1/4 pint) natural yogurt
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 tablespoon brandy

TO DECORATE:

  • Tiny fresh vine leaves (if available)
  • Small clusters of black grapes

INSTRUCTIONS

1 Mix the cottage cheese with a little sweetener to taste (if you don’t have a very sweet tooth, this may not be nec­essary). Blend in the yogurt.

2 Whisk the egg whites until stiff but not dry. Fold lightly but thoroughly into the cheese mixture, together with the brandy.

3 Line 4 small perforated heart-shaped moulds with clean muslin. Spoon the cheese mixture into the lined moulds and cover with another layer of muslin.

4 Place the moulds on a tray or baking sheet with a rim, and chill for 6-8 hours. The excess liquid should have drained away from the cheese, and the moulds should be firm enough to turn out.

5 Unmould the hearts and decorate with vine leaves and clusters of grapes.
