Orange Dream Cheesecake

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 graham cracker, crushed
  • 2/3 cup boiling water
  • 1 (.3 oz) box sugar-free orange gelatin
  • 1 cup 2% cottage cheese
  • 1 (8 oz) tub fat-free cream cheese
  • 2 cups thawed fat-free whipped topping

DIRECTIONS:

  • 1. Sprinkle the graham cracker crumbs onto the bottom of an 8 or 9-inch springform pan sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Note: If you don’t have a springform pan a 9-inch pie plate may be used instead.
  • 2. Add the boiling water to gelatin mix; stir 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Cool 5 minutes; pour into blender. Add cottage cheese and cream cheese; blend well. Pour into a large bowl. Whisk in the whipped topping. Pour into prepared pan; smooth out the top.
