I think it needs cream cheese in addition to the cottage cheese- the texture was a bit weird and deflated. In regards to the previous comment, i%u2019ve never had a cheesecake turn out when using splenda. It has to be real sugar in a cheesecake, but non-fat/low fat cream cheese/cottage cheese doesnt seem to make a difference.

I didn't have a whole lot of luck with this one. While in the oven it looked wonderful. When I tested for doneness it deflated a bit but not badly. As it cooled it just kept sinking and ended up looking rather like a moon crater. This could very well be my fault as I made a half recipe and used a 9" springform pan and I replaced 1/2 of the sugar with Splenda and used fat free evaporated milk. It tastes really good but I'll have to come up with something else for tonights company. Sorry Mirj.
