Yogurt Cheese

This cheese is simple to prepare and is good in marinades and dips. If you need a small amount of yogurt cheese and don't have a lot of time, use the quick-drain method: Spread about twice as much yogurt as you need cheese in a 1/2-inch thickness on several layers of heavy-duty paper towels; cover with additional paper towels, and let stand five minutes. Quick-drained yogurt cheese isn't as thick as this version, but it will do in a pinch.
