I found this recipe in an old cookbook and was immediately drawn to it because it used dry cottage cheese. It reminded me of 'real' ricotta cheesecake.

Directions

  1. Combine jell-o and boiling water and stir to dissolve. Add the vanilla and set aside to cool.
  2. Melt butter and add to crumbs, pat into the bottom of a 13x9 glass dish and bake at 350* for eight minutes. Cool well. Mix dry cottage cheese and cream cheese in a food processor or mixer until well combined. Add the cool jell-o mixture and mix to blend. Whip the evaporated milk with an electric mixer until thick and fold into the cheese mixture. Pour into the crust and refrigerate.
  3. Serve plain or with your favorite topping.
