I followed the recipe with a few changes- no cinnamon in the crust, half the lemon juice, and added about 1/4 c. Cocoa powder as another reviewer did and half a block of no fat cream cheese I had leftover. If you omit all the lemon juice you lose the "cheesecakey" flavor and get a more puddingy result. The lemon gives it that tang and helps firm the cheesecake. My blender couldn't handle it so I used a bowl and an immersion hand blender. easy! It took about an hour and then I turned the oven off and left it cracked for about 15 minutes. It was firm, rich, and delicious- even my husband was amazed that cottage cheese could be so yummy! Thanks for sharing Oma's recipe!
