What You Need

1/2
cup  HONEY MAID Graham Cracker Crumbs
1
cup  sugar, divided
2
Tbsp.  butter or margarine, melted
1
container  (24 oz.) BREAKSTONE'S or KNUDSEN 2% Milkfat Low Fat Cottage Cheese
2
cups  cholesterol-free egg product, divided
2
pkg.  (8 oz. each) PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese, softened
1/2
tsp.  almond extract
2

Make It

PREHEAT oven to 325°F if using a silver 9-inch springform pan (or to 300°F if using a dark nonstick 9-inch springform pan). Mix crumbs, 2 Tbsp. of the sugar and butter until well blended; press firmly onto bottom of pan. Set aside.

PLACE cottage cheese and 1/2 cup of the egg product in blender or food processor container; cover. Blend well; set aside. Beat Neufchatel, 3/4 cup of the remaining sugar, remaining 1-1/2 cups egg product and extract in large bowl with electric mixer on high speed until well blended. Add cottage cheese mixture; mix well. Pour over crust.

BAKE 1 hour 20 minutes or until cheesecake is puffed and center is almost set. Cool on rack 15 minutes. Carefully run metal spatula or knife around edge of cheesecake to loosen; remove side of pan. Refrigerate at least 3 hours.

PLACE 1 cup of the strawberries and remaining 2 Tbsp. sugar in blender container; cover. Blend until pureed. Arrange remaining sliced strawberries on top of cheesecake; drizzle with strawberry puree. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Store leftover cheesecake in refrigerator.
