  17. When the tray is in the oven, we start slowly pouring hot water into it until it reaches half the height of the tray
  18. Bake the cheesecake in the oven at 160 degrees for about an hour and a half
  19. Then turn off the oven, open the door and let the cake cool in it
  20. Let the cake cool there for another hour to prevent its surface from cracking
  21. For the topping, put sour cream in a large bowl, add sugar and vanilla
  22. Mix everything together until smooth
  23. Put the raspberries in a saucepan for the raspberry sauce
  24. Add the sugar, water and heat over a medium heat for about 5 minutes until the sauce starts to thicken, then remove from the heat
  25. Then mash or blend the raspberries with a stick blender
  26. Pieces of cottage cheese are served topped with a sour cream glaze and drizzled with raspberry sauce

If you want to cool the cake in the fridge. Cover it with foil so that the foil does not touch the top of the cake and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
