Categories: Alcohol / Cheesecakes / Desserts / Strawberry

1/4  cup  chocolate wafer cookie crumbs
3  cups  cottage cheese
18  ounces  cream cheese
5  teaspoons  sugar substitute, or sugar equivalent
1  teaspoon  amaretto
1  teaspoon  vanilla extract
3  large  egg yolks
5  large  egg whites

1. 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.

2. Bake in a preheated 400F oven for 12 minutes, then reduce the heat to 200F and bake until set, about 25 to 30 minutes. Turn the oven off, partially open the door, and let the cake stand in the oven for 1 hour. Remove from the oven and cool completely on a wire rack. Remove the sides from the pan. Arrange sliced strawberries over the cake. Brush with melted strawberry jam.
