    Chicken Finger's Note:

    My mom was making this for a family party and I was skeptical because of the cottage cheese. While my uncle (the dessert king) was eating it and loving it, I said "Did you know that you can make cheesecake with cottage cheese?" He said "I don't think that would be good." (As he was on his second piece!) Needless to say he was surprised and he never would have known that it was was made from cottage cheese instead of cream cheese and that it was BETTER for him than regular cheesecake!

      I was hesitant about tagging this, but it worked out well. The only changes were I left out the vanilla extract, and I used the vanilla wafers over the Oreos.
