"Not" Cream Cheese Cake
FOR CRUST (CAN BE DOUBLED OF YOU LIKE, (can be doubled of A LOT OF CRUST)***, you like a lot of
1 cup Graham Wafer Crackers
2 Tablespons sugar
2 tablespoons Margarine, melted
1/2 teaspoon Almond extract flavoring
2 tablespoons Unflavored gelatin powder, (I use Knox brand)
1 1/4 cups Canned milk, (skim)
2 teaspoons Lemon rind, grated
2/3 cup Sugar
1 teaspoon Pure vanilla extract
Directions for Filling
1. In a food processor, beat the cottage cheese until satiny smooth
(very important for a smooth texture).
2. Scald the milk (microwave for about 2-3 minutes). While it is heating, soften gelatin powder in cup of cold water and let stand 1 minute. Combine these two ingredients along with the sugar, vanilla and lemon peel. Add to the "smooth" cottage cheese mixture and gently beat just until combined. Don't over whip, creating a lot of foam.
