cheesecake-3 recipe

  Here's my favorite.
 1 cup sugar
 8 oz. non-fat cottage cheese
 4 Tbs non-fat butter substitute (like Promise or Fleishmans)
 8 oz. non-fat cream cheese
 3 eggs (use non-fat egg beaters or 4 egg whites)
 1 Tbs lemon juice
 1/2 Tbs vanilla
 2 Tbs cornstarch
 2 Tbs flour
 1/2 pt. non-fat sour cream
 Cream sugar and cottage cheese together with an electric mixer, blender or
 foodprocessor to try to get it as smooth as possible.  When smooth, add rest
 of ingredients.  Beat 15 min. with electric beater on high.  (I usually get
 too impatient and "cheat" on the 15 min).  Put into a round pie plate or
 spring form pan -- you might have a little left over ( I then use a small
 corning bowl and make a tiny "test" cake for me to eat before the "guests"!!)
  Bake at 300 for 60 - 70 min until it is solid and slightly browned.  Shut
 off oven and let sit for 3 hrs.  I usually garnish with fresh berries, or a
 combination of chocolate(see note below) and berries.
 Grahmn cracker crust --  8 grahmn crackers crushed, add apple juice
 concentrate and a little water to make it sticky.  Press into the bottom and
 side of baking dish.  Pour cheese cake mixture on top.  Or if you want a
 chocolate grahmn cracker crust also add cocoa and powdered sugar to the crust
 mixture.  OR spray bottom of pan w/cooking spray and sprinkle on a layer of
 granola and pack down.  Sorry I don't know the amts.  I just do it by "feel".
 For a chocolate sause topping:  Mix cocoa, powdered sugar, butter substitute,
 apple juice concentrate and water to make a thick paste.  Heat in a double
 boiler.  Put into a plastic baggie.  Snip corner with scissors and swirl
 around top of uncooked cheese cake in a spiral pattern.  With a toothpick or
 knife make lines through the sause to make a nice design (like the spokes of
 a wheel -- boy this is hard to explain!!)  OR the lazy way is to use some
 non-fat chocolate ice cream sause (like Hershey's) and just squeeze it on
 right from the bottle!!
