   pan-coating; set aside. Make fine crumbs, with graham
   crackers (1/2 cup) and mix thoroughly with melted
   margarine; set aside. Soak gelatin in cold water.
   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.  Put 2 tablespoons
   water, cottage cheese, and lemon extract into a
   blender or food processor and cover; turn to high
   speed for 10-15 seconds.  Add partially set gelatin
   mixture; turnto high speed 15 seconds or until well
   blended. Pour into prepared pan. Sprinkle graham
   cracker crumbs evenly over top.  Wash, hull, and dry
   strawberries. Slice in halves lengthwise.  Arrange on
   top of cake so that, when cut into eight servings (4
   by 2 inches), each will have a strawberry garnish in
   center. Chill several hours, until set.
