"New York City comfort food at it's finest. Which of life's problems isn't made better with a slab of noodle kugel? And of course, Grandma's warm hug. There is a question of whether this is a side dish or dessert. I say twice is nice - have it for both. This is NOT a low fat dish, and will be ruined if you try to make it so. So don't."

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Butter a 13x9x2-inch baking dish.

Step 2

Cook the egg noodles in a large pot of boiling water according to package directions. Drain and rinse in cold water.

Step 3

In a large mixing bowl, gently whisk the 3 egg yolks. Slowly add the melted butter and salt, and whisk well to combine. Add the cooked noodles, stirring to coat.

Step 4

In a medium bowl, stir together the cottage cheese, sour cream, and sugar. Scrape into the bowl with the noodle mixture and give everything a good stir.

Step 5

In a clean, dry mixing bowl fitted with the whisk attachment, beat the egg whites with a pinch of cream of tartar until stiff peaks form. Fold gently into the noodles. Spread into the baking dish and smooth the top. Dust with the cinnamon.

Step 6

Bake in the center of the oven for 45 minutes. Serve warm, or refrigerate overnight (cool to room temp first), cut into squares, reheat, and serve.
