    Wow, this is a really easy and great recipe for yogurt cheese! I had always wanted to try making cheese out of yogurt, but never thought the results would be this good! I let my cheese stand in the fridge for 1 1/2 days and voila I had a really thick, feta like cheese. I then used it to make your Recipe #337370 and the taste was just fabulous! Thanks so very much for sharing this super duper recipe with us, hon! Ill definitely will make this again! Made and reviewed for my baby during PAC Fall 09.

    OK, I have to admit that I wasn't sure if this was working. I let it sit for 2 1/2 days, hoping that it would get thicker. I just took it out of the cheesecloth, and it's thicker than I thought, almost like a thinner soft cream cheese consistency. I ended up with 3/4 cup of whey in the bowl and I started with 3 cups of yogurt. I'm going to stir fresh dill, a little fresh lemon juice, black pepper and minced garlic in it and use it for a veggie dip. I tagged this recipe in ***1.2.3 HIT WONDERS*** .
