"This is a light, creamy, no-bake dessert made with cottage cheese instead of cream cheese, so it is lower in calories than most cheesecakes."

My Mom use to make this recipe and now that she has passed on I am the one that makes it for the holidays. It always gets rave reviews!
I will definitely make it again. It is very light and tastes great with strawberry or blueberry pie filling dolloped on top when you are ready to serve it. For some reason I had difficulty getting the custard mixture to thicken, even after boiling for several minutes, but added a tablespoon of all-purpose flour and then continued to boil for a minute.
This would make a very nice light tasting dessert for the summer also. I think I would like to try it with flavored gelatin the next time.
My husband & I love this healthier cheesecake & I've made it a few times...will be making another one soon!
