Lemon Ricotta Cheesecake #2

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2015
notes from recipe......A few bites of cheesecake normally leaves you feeling overstuffed-- it's one of the heaviest desserts out there. Delicious, but sometimes a little too much. That's why basing the cake with ricotta makes such a difference. Ricotta is lighter and fluffier. It makes for an altogether more refreshing treat. The addition of lemon zest makes for a tangy, mildly sweet cake that hits the spot on lazy, summer afternoons. All sorts of Italian desserts combine these two ingredients-- ricotta and lemons-- with palette-pleasing results. Make sure to stock up on high-quality ricotta (fresh from the farmer's market is ideal!). It makes all the difference. Ricotta-based cakes are a staple in bakeries all over Italy. They vary in texture and sweetness. We think this recipe provides just the right balance. It's a great alternative to the sticky, sugar-saturated desserts that populate supermarket shelves. Still, it's got just the right touch of sweetness. Try it out for yourself, and you'll understand why it's so well-loved both in Italy and beyond.
