In work bowl of food processor fitted with steel knife, puree light cream

batter; blend well. Drop tablespoonfuls of peppermint batter onto batter in
pan, forming 5 to 6 dollops. Using a table knife, swirl peppermint batter
through light batter to marble. Bake in a 325 degree oven to 40 to 50
minutes until edges are set and center is almost set. Turn oven off; let
cheesecake stand in oven 30 minutes with door open. Remove from oven; run

NOTES : Chocolate Shamrocks: Place 1 ounce semi-sweet chocolate in
freezer-weight reclosable plastic bag. Immerse in very hot water to melt
chocolate; cool slightly. Make small snip on one corner of bag. Cover
baking sheet with waxed paper. Cut shamrock pattern out of paper and place
under waxed paper. Pipe chocolate in shamrock outline, moving pattern
under waxed paper to make each design. Repeat with 1 ounce white chocolate
baking bar. Refrigerate until chocolate is set. With spatula, transfer
shamrocks to cheesecake. TIP: To make in blender, puree cottage cheese in
batches with the sugar. Beat light cream cheese in large bowl until smooth
and creamy. Beat in pureed cottage cheese. Continue adding ingredients as
directed. TIP: For ease in cutting, dip knife in hot water before slicing.
TIP: For a flavor variation, substitute lemon extract for peppermint
extract. Use several drops of yellow food color instead of green.
