    This recipe for Hungarian curd cheesecake -- turos (curd cheese) lepeny (sheet) -- is also known as turos pite, and turos racsos. It's also known as Rakoczi-style curd cheesecake after Janos Rakoczi (1897-1966), a Hungarian chef reputed to have created the dessert. Some have lattice dough tops, others meringue.

    So happy to have gotten acquainted with this side of the world - lovely recipe.
