The easiest cheesecake I ever made, and one of the best! I used only 5 eggs, substituted the orange zest, cinnamon and salt with lemon extract (1 teaspoon), kept the vanilla, and added 1/3 cup of good Austrian rum. You may use any kind of rum, however, the Austrian kind (made from molasses, not sugar cane) is just my own favorite. I like the lighter texture and the more refreshing taste of ricotta cheese better than that of cream cheese, which I personally consider much too rich and heavy.
Update: I also found the following spices very good:
1 teaspoon lemon extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon rum or 1 teaspoon rum extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
omit salt, orange zest and cinnamon from the original recipe.
