Using cottage cheese to make a cheese cake tastes great and is lower in fat that cream cheese. I think that the custard powder and lemon zest provide a nice flavour.
I haven't actually tried the recipe yet, but almost decided not to try it because the first step simply said to "roll out" without explaining what (though I did realise it meant the pastry) or how to make it. I suggest that the method needs to be revised, as it is incoherent at the moment. - 09 Jan 2011
