Twists & Tips

For those a little more adventurous with their palate, you can add a dollop of blueberry sauce or

raspberry sauce on top before applying the frosting, or stir in the cream cheese mixture for extra

flavor. For a lower-calorie version, you can replace the full-fat cottage cheese with a low-fat or low-fat

version. If gluten sensitivity runs in your family, consider using gluten-free graham cracker crumbs.
