  • Prep Time 30 min
  • Total Time 8 hr 30 min
  • Servings 9

Ingredients

6
squares low-fat honey graham crackers, finely crushed (1/2 cup)
2
tablespoons butter, melted
1
teaspoon sugar
1
package (4-serving size) sugar-free lime-flavor gelatin
3/4
cup boiling water
1
container (16 oz) fat-free cottage cheese
1
package (8 oz) fat-free cream cheese, softened
1
container (8 oz) frozen fat-free whipped dessert topping, thawed
Key limes or limes, cut in wedges (optional)

Directions

  • 1 In a small bowl, combine crushed graham crackers, butter, and sugar. Press crumb mixture in the bottom of a 2-quart square baking dish. Refrigerate while preparing filling.
  • 2 In a large bowl, combine gelatin and the boiling water. Stir until gelatin is dissolved. Set aside.
  • 3 In a blender or food processor, combine cottage cheese and cream cheese. Cover and blend or process until smooth, stopping several times to scrape sides of container. Whisk 1/2 cup of the cottage cheese mixture into the gelatin mixture. Whisk in remaining cottage cheese mixture until smooth. Fold in whipped dessert topping. Spoon filling over chilled crumb mixture.
  • 4 Cover and refrigerate for 8 to 24 hours or until filling is firm. To serve, cut into squares and top with lime wedges, if desired.
