Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

In a large bowl, combine cottage cheese, sugar, flour, lemon juice, salt, egg yolks, evaporated milk, and regular milk.

Mix well.

In a separate clean bowl, beat egg whites until firm.

Fold into batter until smooth. Pour into pie crusts.

Bake for 15 minutes at 425 degrees F (220 degrees C), then reduce oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and bake for an additional 25 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.

Cool on racks, then refrigerate.

When the cupboards are low, you learn to substitute ingredients. This recipe comes from such necessity. Try a slice, and you'll agree, it's an excellent alternative.

*This recipe works great in my KitchenAid food processor, by the way*
