"A very delicious cheesecake made with cottage cheese. Egg whites are whipped and folded into the batter to lighten it and give it a cake-like consistency. You may substitute ricotta cheese if you like." — Marjorita Whyte

1 1/2 cups
graham cracker crumbs
2 (16 ounce) packages
grated lemon zest
The recipe should suggest you put cottage cheese in a blender and cream it first. This recipe was lumpy and had a gritty texture. Also needed more sugar and lemon juice.
Thank you for adding the cottage cheese!
This recipe was pretty good. I used ricotta cheese like it said I could and half mascarpone cheese. It was good. This is only my second time making cheesecake so don't know if it was me or the recipe but was hoping for a creamier texture. I would use this recipe again!
