  • 1/4

    cup packed dark brown sugar

  • 1/4

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/4

    teaspoon ground mace or nutmeg

  • 4.5

    ounces all-purpose flour (about 1 cup)

  • Cooking spray

  • Filling:

  • 1

    cup 1% low-fat cottage cheese

  • 1

    cup granulated sugar

  • 2

    tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1

    tablespoon grated lemon rind

  • 3 1/2

    tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • 1

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350°. 2. To prepare crust, place first 4 ingredients in a large bowl, and beat with a mixer at medium speed until smooth. Weigh or lightly spoon 4.5 ounces (about 1 cup) flour into a dry measuring cup, and level with a knife. Add flour to butter mixture, and beat at low speed until well blended. Press crust into bottom of an 8-inch square metal baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes. 3. To prepare filling, place cottage cheese in a food processor; process 2 minutes or until smooth, scraping sides of bowl once. Add granulated sugar and next 6 ingredients (through egg white), and process until well blended. Pour filling over crust. 4. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until set (the edges will get lightly browned). Cool. Cover and chill 8 hours. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving, if desired.
