    8.5 inch spring form pans can be difficult to find, you can use a 9-inch pan instead.

    This is my recipe for Passover Cheesecake. It calls for coconut macaroon crumbs for the crust, but I prefer using almond macaroon cookie crumbs. Of course you could always sub matzoh meal for the macaroon crumbs.

    Makes One 9-inch cheesecake

    2 cups soft almond (or coconut) macaroon cookie crumbs
    2 Tbsp margarine, melted
    1 Lb cream cheese, softened
    1 (16 oz) container ricotta cheese (I think the containers are only 15 oz now) - drain the ricotta if it has a lot of whey
    1 cup sugar
    1 tsp pure vanilla extract
    4 eggs
    1/2 cup sour cream (optional, for topping)
    2 cups sliced strawberries (optional, for topping)

    Preheat oven to 325°F (lower oven temp 25°F if using a dark metal/non-stick spring form pan).

    Mix cookie crumbs and margarine; press firmly onto bottom of pan.

    Beat cream cheese, ricotta cheese, sugar and vanilla in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended.

    Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each addition just until blended.

    Pour batter into the crust.

    Bake for 55 min. to 1 hour or until center is almost set.

    Remove from oven, place on cooling rack, run small knife or metal spatula around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool cake completel before chilling.

    Refrigerate cooled cake at least 4 hours or overnight before removing pan rim.

    Optional topping:
    Spread sour cream over top of cheesecake; top with strawberries just before serving.

    Store leftover cheesecake in refrigerator.
