Hungarian Cheesecake (Gyumolcsos Turotorta)

I made this cheesecake for my husband’s birthday. I used a Hungarian style farmer’s cheese called turo, it is sometimes also known as cottage cheese, however the cottage cheese found in North America is very different from turo, so if you try this with regular cottage cheese, you might find a different kind of texture of cheesecake although I would say the flavor would still be the same.
