I should preface this by saying that I never cook light, so the way the cottage cheese affected the consistency of the cheesecake is affecting my rating. I think this would have been a lot better with full-calorie cream cheese and no cottage cheese. If you're looking for something light, this is probably a good bet. the problem is, I'd prefer something richer.
