Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Dissolve yeast in lukewarm water. Heat cottage cheese to lukewarm, stirring constantly. Combine dissolved yeast and warm cottage cheese in large bowl.
Add remaining ingredients and beat well. Cover. Let rise 1 hour.
Turn out on floured board and knead until smooth. Shape into 2 loaves. Let rise until double.
Bake 45-50 minutes. While bread is warm, brush with butter and sprinkle lightly with salt. I do not put bread in a pan to bake. I just roll dough into 2 balls and place on a well greased baking sheet.
