Cheesecake, Lower Fat (D, TNT)
Source: based on my mother's recipe
Serves: 15-20

1-1/2 packs graham crackers (about half the box; or 1/2 lb. plain cookies), crushed
1/3 cup margarine, melted

2 pounds regular cottage cheese (or low or non-fat)
1 cup sugar
3-4 eggs (we never used it, but I guess you could use an egg substitute)
1/2 small can evaporated milk OR 1/3 cup sour cream (OR 1/3 cup low fat plain yogurt OR 1/3 cup skim milk)
1 tbsp. melted margarine
1 tsp. vanilla

Blend well; pat into a 9"x13" baking pan, reserving a bit for the topping.

Blend this all together and pour into the prepared crust. Sprinkle with reserved crumbs. Bake at 350°F for about 40 minutes. Test by inserting knife in center. It should be dry.

Poster's Notes:
This is based on my mother's recipe. My changes are in parentheses. This cake has spoiled me for others. When my mother made this she had to put up signs not to touch after one she made never cooled. She barely salvaged a piece for my father for dessert that evening.
