Yum!! This is a very, very good cheesecake. I used crumbled chocolate graham crackers for the crust. I also melted about a tablespoon of butter and brushed it on the bottom and sides of the pan before sprinkling on the crumbs. I think that helped the crust hold together. Instead of egg substitute, I beat 2 eggs very well and then measured 1/3 cup of them. It cracked a little on one side, and coming out of the oven, the top was uneven. It settled and became smooth upon sitting. I've never made a baked cheesecake before, so I think that was probably my fault. I only have a small food processor so i had to mix the ingredients in my mixer after pureeing the cottage cheese in my processor. I think that may have beaten too much air into the batter, even though I tried not to overbeat it. The taste was still very good, and not too dense or heavy so it could be served after a meal. Thanks, we really enjoyed this. Oh, and I served without strawberries.
