6 chocolate wafers (about 1 1/2 ounces)
1 cup sugar
1 cup 1% low-fat cottage cheese
1/2 cup (4 ounces) block-style fat-free cream cheese
6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup amaretto (almond-flavored liqueur)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 (8-ounce) block 1/3-less-fat cream cheese
1 large egg
2 tablespoons semisweet chocolate minichips
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 300°.
Place wafers in a food processor, and pulse until coarsely ground. Sprinkle crumbs into bottom of an 8-inch springform pan coated with cooking spray.
Place sugar and next 8 ingredients (sugar through cream cheese) in a food processor, and process until smooth. Add egg, and process until blended. Pour the cheese mixture into prepared pan, and sprinkle with minichips. Bake at 300° for 55 minutes or until the cheesecake center barely moves when pan is touched. Remove cheesecake from oven, and run a knife around outside edge. Cool to room temperature. Cover and chill at least 8 hours.
