Cottage Cheese Salad

I had copied this recipe back before I got married, so over 28 years ago.  This time I made it with Splenda, and much prefer regular sugar.  Splenda made it rather bland and I usually don't think of this as a bland recipe. 
Cottage Cheese Salad

2 envelopes plain gelatin
1/2 c water
1/2 c boiling water
1 scant c sugar
1 lb small curd cottage cheese
1/2 pt (1 c) whipping cream
1/2 t vanilla

Dissolve the plain gelatin in 1/2 c water.   Add 1/2 c boiling water and stir well.  Refrigerate for 15-20 minutes. 

Beat the cottage cheese and add sugar.  Beat well.  Add the gelatin to the cottage cheese and beat.  Next add the whipping cream and  beat until well combined(2-3 minutes.)  Add vanilla and beat well. 

Can be put into a mold or just in a bowl and refrigerate until set.
