I was surprised at how good this was! I served it for Christmas dinner and my family loved it. I did make one mistake, in that I assumed that I could blend in the cottage cheese to the recipe without running it through the blender first, since I was using an electric mixer, but it turned out to be important. Even with the minor texture issue, the flavor was still fantastic. The almond extract was a bit much, so I used half as much as the recipe called for, and I think I'll use vanilla next time.
