Recipe by Janet Knowles
Found in a 1977 "Introducing Cottage Cheese" from Borden. I made this for a small party way back then and it was very good. I made it again recently and found it was just as good as it was the first time I made it.
- 1 1⁄4 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 1⁄4 cup butter or 1⁄4 cup margarine, softened
- 3 cups cottage cheese
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup light cream
- 1⁄4 cup flour
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon lemon extract or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (I used vanilla)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup whipping cream (Cool Whip works)
- chocolate syrup
- peaches or strawberry (I used fruit)
