Morning Pie

“A.K.A ‘Guiltless Cheesecake,’ this orange-flavored morning delight is light and airy.”


Servings: Makes 1 Pie

2 cups cottage cheese
4 eggs
²/₃ cup sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons grated orange rind
1 tablespoon orange juice
¼ teaspoon orange extract (or Grand Marnier)

1 teaspoon nutmeg


Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, beat cottage cheese with an electric mixer on high speed for 1 minute. Add remaining ingredients and blend well.
