Can I use cottage cheese instead of cream cheese when making a cheesecake?

Can I use cottage cheese and ricotta cheese together for a cheesecake which needs to be baked. I bought cottage cheese instead of cream cheese for a recipe, can I substitute?

  • How attached are you to your existing recipe? Do you have enough ricotta to simply make a ricotta cheesecake? There are also cottage cheese cheesecakes, though I've not personally tried them. – Cascabel Apr 13 '12 at 5:33
  • I'll note that if what you really like about cheesecake is the smooth, dense texture, then nothing other than cream cheese will do. You can make a cake out of all sorts of other types of cheese, but they won't be cheesecake. (If all I had was cottage cheese and ricotta, I'd acquire or make some egg noodles and make kugel. Much better use of the ingredients.) – Marti Apr 13 '12 at 14:32
