*Schmand is a German/Austrian dairy specialty, similar, but not exactly the same as Quark. It's hard to find in North America. If you can't find Schmand, you can use a mix of cottage cheese or sour cream with cream cheese in a ratio of 2 to 1 (for example, 2/3 cup cottage cheese to 1/3 cup sour cream to substitute for 1 cup of Schmand.
