    1      teaspoon      Reduced-calorie margarine
    6                    Chocolate wafers; crush  -- or
      1/3  cup           Chocolate Teddy Grahams  -- crushed
   16      ounces        Light cream cheese
    1      cup           Sugar
    1 1/2  cups          Low-fat cottage cheese
      1/2  cup           Unsweetened cocoa powder
      1/4  cup           All-purpose flour
    2      teaspoons     Vanilla extract
      1/2  teaspoon      Almond extract
      1/4  teaspoon      Salt

 Preheat oven to 300~. Grease the bottom of an 8-1/2x11 springform pan with
 margarine. Sprinkle chocolate wafer crumbs into the pan. Set aside. In
 processor add cream cheese, sugar, cottage cheese, cocoa, flour, extracts
 and salt; process until smooth. Add egg substitute and process just until
 blended. Slowly pour mixture over crumbs in pan. Place a small pan of
 boiling water in the corner of the oven (this helps prevent the cheesecake
 from cracking on the top). Bake for 65-75 minutes or until cheesecake is
 set. Cool in pan on wire rack. Cover and chill at least 8 hours.
 Remove sides of pan and transfer cake to a serving platter. Garnish with
 berries, if desired.
