Love the "cheesecake" part of this recipe but the topping is way too dry even though I baked the cake for about 70 minutes. Also there was way too much topping!! I put a copious amount on the cheesecake and still had enough for another! I will make the cake again but need to get another topping recipe.
We loved this. I used the shortbread crust from Macadamia Lemon Bars, minus the macadamia nuts. I pressed it into a springform pan and baked it for 25 minutes. I smoothed the cottage cheese mixture with my immersion blender. I had to bake it an extra 15 minutes until it wasn't too liquidy. It was hard to remove from the springform pan but still turned out firm but soft and very sweet. It would have filled 2 regular pie shells. Very good served with fruit. Thanks for the recipe!
Fabulous! Not too heavy and not too dry. Keep the Polish recipes comming!
