These are so good! Like little lemon cheesecake bites. Used mace which gives the bars a distinctive but lovely flavor. I cut these in smaller serving sizes, about 1 1/2 inch squares. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

These are really good. I did use lowfat yogurt instead of the cottage cheese since I didn't have a blender to process the cheese. I also added a little less sugar to the filling because I like them really tangy. The crust is great and the nutmeg adds a really complex flavor without overwhelming. The filling is smooth and lemony and just firm enough to cut. I'll definitely make these again. Edit: They freeze well too. Just use wax or parchment paper to separate the layers.

I can't believe this went so long without anyone making it! I loved the combo of the crunchy brown sugar/mace flavor crust with the creamy lemon cheesecake like topping....VERY NICE! I used premium molasses dark brown sugar. I used my immersion blender to puree the cottage cheese in a bowl and then beat in the rest of the ingredients with my electric mixer. It used about 2 lemons. Mine baked for much longer than the recipe says...it took 40 minutes before it looked set. This does have a very nice lemon flavor but mine wasn't puckerable. Also, I'd say it makes 8 large servings but 16 small ones so the calories are even less! Thanks for this keeper recipe Mirj!
