Step-by-Step Cooking Instructions:

Prepare the Cheese Mixture: Blend the cottage cheese in a blender for 2-3 minutes until smooth. Add the cream cheese, eggs, most of the sugar (reserve 1 tablespoon for later), vanilla sugar, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt. Mix quickly to combine—do not overmix to avoid incorporating too much air.

Bake in a Water Bath: Place the cheesecake form inside a larger baking tray. Fill the tray with hot water halfway up the sides of the cheesecake form. Bake for 40 minutes, then turn off the oven and let the cheesecake cool inside until it reaches room temperature. Chill in the refrigerator for 12 hours covered with plastic wrap.
