My guest today is Donita K Paul!

Here is a recipe from her DragonKnight. It is delicious as a summer treat.

Mistress Maye Ghint’s Fruity Cheesecake

from the menu of The Goose & The Gander
(A tavern in DragonKnight)

1/2 C. crushed nuts, pecan or almonds are best
1/2 C. boiling water
1 package (4 serving size) of any flavor sugar free gelatin dessert
1 C. cottage cheese
8 oz. cream cheese
2 C. thawed whipped non-dairy topping (one 8 oz. bowl)
Spray the bottom and sides of a spring form pan, or 9 inch pie plate, with non-stick cooking spray and sprinkle with 2/3 of crushed nuts.

Stir boiling water into gelatin in large bowl for about two minutes until powder is completely dissolved. Pour into blender container. Add cheeses. Blend on medium speed until smooth.

Pour into large bowl and gently fold in whipped topping.

Pour into prepared pan, smoothing the top, and sprinkling the remaining crushed nuts around the outer edge.

Refrigerate for four hours or until set.

Garnish with fruit if desired.

Donita’s current release is The Vanishing Sculptor, WaterBrook Press, June 2009

Meet Tipper, a young emerlindian who’s responsible for the upkeep of her family’s estate during her sculptor father’s absence. Tipper soon discovers that her actions have unbalanced the whole foundation of her world, and she must act quickly to undo the calamitous threat. But how can she save her father and her world on her own? The task is too huge for one person, so she gathers the help of some unlikely companions-including the nearly five-foot tall parrot Beccaroon-and eventually witnesses the loving care and miraculous resources of Wulder. Through Tipper’s breathtaking story, readers will discover the beauty of knowing and serving God.
