1 kg unsalted soft cheese
250 g flour
500 g sugar
grated rind of 1 green lemon
Grate the cheese and mix with the sugar, flour and beaten eggs. Add the cinnamon, lemon rind and a teaspoon of aniseed and beat well.
Mix the flour and a little water to make a light dough. Turn out onto a floured board and roll to pie-lining thickness. Grease a pastry tin and line with the pastry, fill with the cheese mixture and bake until golden in a hot oven.
