What You'll Need

  • 1 (16-ounce) container low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 (9-inch) graham cracker pie crust
  • 3 tablespoons raspberry preserves, melted
  • 1 tablespoon blanched almonds, chopped

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a medium bowl, with an electric mixer, combine cottage cheese, sugar, lemon zest, eggs, and vanilla. Pour the mixture into the pie crust.
