Beat into the cream cheese mixture. Pour into crust. Bake at 375 for 40 min until just set. Pear variation: redice cottage cheese to 8 oz and beat in 1 T flour with cream cheese. Chop a peeled, cored peat in half in chunks to make 1 c. Place pears in boiling water, reduce heat and simmer 2 min. Remove, rinse under cold water and drain well. Stir drained pears into the batter and bake at 375 for 45 min.
