  1. Prepare an 8- by 8- by 2-inch cake pan with vegetable pan-coating; set aside.

  2. Make fine crumbs with graham crackers (1/2 cup) and mix thoroughly with melted margarine; set aside.

  3. Soak gelatin in cold water.

  4. Combine boiling water and lemon rind; add to gelatin. Add lemon juice and sweetener, stirring until completely dissolved. Chill until it is the consistency of unbeaten egg whites.

  5. Put 2 tablespoons water, cottage cheese, and lemon extract into a blender or food processor and cover; turn to high speed for 10 to 15 seconds.

  6. Add partially set gelatin mixture; turn to high speed 15 seconds or until well blended. Pour into prepared pan. Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs evenly over top.
