Morning Pie

A dreamy light, good for you, version of cheesecake. We serve it with fruit for breakfast but it makes a very tasty dessert - top with fruit, whipped cream and of course, some chocolate sauce.

2 C cottage cheese 1/4 t nutmeg
3 eggs 1 t grated orange rind
2/3 C sugar 1 T orange juice
2T all-purpose flour 1/4 t orange extract
1/3 t cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat cottage cheese with an electric mixer for 1 minute. Add remaining ingredients. Blend well. Pour into "pammed" pie plate & bake for 50 minutes, until knife inserted comes out clean. Refrigerate overnight; serve chilled next morning. Serves 6. Freezes beautifully. Defrost overnight in refrigerator. Slice & serves 6 or more.
