Slice into this low-fat cheesecake and you'll forget you're dieting. Fat-free cheese and sour cream provide plenty of creamy texture and rich flavor but keep the dessert within healthy eating guidelines.
In a small bowl stir together the graham cracker crumbs and melted margarine or butter. Press onto the bottom of an 8-inch springform pan. Set aside.
Cut up the cream cheese. In a large food processor bowl place the undrained cottage cheese and the 1/4 cup milk. Cover and process until smooth. Add cream cheese, the 3/4 cup sugar, the flour, 1 teaspoon of the vanilla, and the lemon peel. Cover; process until smooth. Add the eggs or egg product and process just until combined. Do not over process. Pour mixture into pan. Place on a baking sheet.
Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until set. Cool for 15 minutes. Using a narrow metal spatula, loosen the side of the cheesecake from pan. Cool 30 minutes more, then remove the side of pan. Cool completely. Cover and chill for at least 4 hours.
In a small bowl combine the sour cream, 2 teaspoons milk, the 1 teaspoon sugar, and the remaining vanilla. To serve, arrange berries on top of cheesecake; drizzle with sour cream mixture. Makes 12 servings.
