Arrange sliced strawberries over the cake. Brush with melted strawberry jam.
In a food processor, blend together cottage cheese and cream cheese until smooth. Add sugar substitute, amaretto liqueur, and vanilla; blend until smooth. Add egg yolks. Beat egg whites and cream of tartar to soft peaks. Gently fold into the cheese mixture. Pour into a 9-inch springform pan.
