Refrigerator Cheesecake

This is a very light chilled pie with a consistency similar to yogurt. It's good with a fruit topping. It does not set up very firm. I calculated the calories (minus the crust) to be about 175 per serving. I couldn't fit all of the recipe in a 9-inch pie pan (maybe a deep dish?), and the recipe says it makes 6 servings! They're big servings! It's a nice compliment to a starchy and/or spicy dinner.

from More With Less (a Mennonite Cookbook)

Prepare graham cracker crust or line 9-inch pie pan or 8x8-inch baking pan with graham cracker crumbs. Combine in saucepan:
1 pkg. unflavored gelatin
1/2 c. cold water
Warm over low heat until dissolved. Combine in blender:
dissolved gelatin
1 1/4 cup water
2 cups cottage cheese
1 1/2 cups powdered milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
Whirl until liquefied. Add:
1/4 cup lemon juice
Blend until well mixed. Pour into crumb crust. Chill until set.

Serves 6
