I made this recipe with my food processor as I was hesitant to make a cheesecake with cottage cheese. These turned out delicious!!! You don't even know that cottage cheese is in the recipe. The recipe is easy to follow and the bars cut nicely for serving. I took them to work and my team just loved them. I like the idea of maybe next time trying lime zest and juice in place of the lemon as either would be delicious.
