How to Make Bless-Your-Heart Cheesecake

Step-by-Step

  3. In food processor fitted with metal blade or in blender, process cottage cheese, sugar, orange peel and salt until smooth.
  4. With processor running, slowly add gelatin mixture.
  5. Spoon mixture into a 9-inch (6 1/2-cup) heart-shaped baking pan or an 8 x 1 1/2-inch round baking pan.
  6. In a small bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs and butter; sprinkle over cheesecake mixture.
  7. Cover and refrigerate until firm, 2 to 3 hours.
