for the crust:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. For the crust, in food processor with the steel chopping blade in place, pulverize the biscotti. Add the softened butter and salt. Process just until crumbs, and can be pressed into a 9 or 10 inch cheesecake pan. Press the mixture in bottom of the pan, working it up the sides just a little. Bake 8 minutes. Set aside. To prepare the filling, place the cream cheese in glass or ceramic batter bowl and microwave on half power for 2 minutes to soften. In processor whirl the cottage cheese to smooth it, or press it through a sieve. Whirl in the vanilla, salt, eggs, cream, flour, lemon zest, juice, and sugar. Blend in the softened cheese and bake 60-70 minutes or until set. Allow cheesecake to cool in the oven with the oven door ajar for best results. Then chill.
