"I actually have not made this recipe, but I will because it uses cottage cheese and a cheesecake I made many years ago used cottage cheese. But I have neve liked graham cracker crust, so I would not use any crust. I have never understood why a cheese cake would have a crust, as cakes don't have a crust, Pies do. I'm glad to see this recipe does call it a cheesecake pie."

"I would assume that the amount of regular sugar would be 1/4 cup, since that was what they want to substitute to be an equivalent of, if that makes sense. :) Hope that helps."

"I fudged on the rating and making this recipe again as I haven't tried it, however, it looks so good I'm sure it will be five stars and well-worth making. I don't use sugar substitutes...does anyone know the equivalent amount of real sugar to use? Thank you"

"Its a great make ahead dessert, since it has to be refridgerated overnight. Thick and creamy, I like to top it with fresh fruit and give it a dusting of powdered sugar."
