Yogurt-Cheese Pie

An untried, but yummy sounding, recipe from More With Less (a Mennonite Cookbook). It's similar to Refrigerator Cheesecake, which was quite tasty.

Prepare and cool:
9-inch graham cracker pie shell (Betsy's note: you could buy this!)

Combine in a small saucepan:
1/3 cup milk
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
Stir to soften gelatin. Warm over low heat, stirring constantly, until gelatin dissolves.

Combine in blender or mixing bowl:
1 cup cottage cheese
1 1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/4 cup sugar or 3 tablespoons honey
dissolved gelatin mixture
Whirl or whip briefly. Chill mixture 20-30 minutes or until it begins to set. Pour into pie shell and chill.

* Sprinkle with nutmeg.
* Put 1-2 cups fresh berries or sliced bananas into pie shell before pouring in yogurt mixture. Chill and serve within 8 hours.
* After filling sets, top with any thickened fruit.
* Instead of pouring filling into pie shell, layer with fruit into parfait glasses.
