My Mom has been gone for many years but this was her cheesecake recipe. In my opinion, this is the best graham cracker crust I have ever had. And you would never know that the filling is made out of cottage cheese. It definitely tastes more like a cream cheese filling. Everyone looks forward to this cake on Easter. I believe she got this recipe from the booklet that came with her Waring blender.
