Last weekend my mother reminded me that this recipe was from my great grandmother. It is filled with good things like cottage cheese, lemon juice, and yogurt, it is refreshing, especially after a hearty meal.  Actually the original recipe called for heavy cream, but I substituted a drinkable yogurt from Whole Foods and found it great.. Also if you are near a Braums, their dairy products are great and no added hormones.  I made it also in small muffin tins for smaller sweets for a party. And it can be baked in a graham cracker crust too if you prefer.
