Ricotta cheesecake has a delicate texture and many times it is best to serve the cake from the baking pan. Make sure the cake is well chilled before serving it either at room temperature or slightly chilled. Slice into even wedges and either sprinkle it with a dash of liqueur or serve it with fresh fruit.
I made this for a Christmas party and everyone gave it rave reviews. I made it the day before the party to make sure it was chilled well. The recipe originally came from a message board on AOL posted by Steph. It's a winner!
There used to be a restaurant here in PR that had the BEST mango cheesecake but the rest. closed down. A friend got me the recipe, so I actually modified it quite a bit and came out with something even better than the original! So, here is a little taste of Puerto Rico, enjoy!
This fun dessert starts with your favorite cheesecake recipe, minus the crust. I made #107544 for this. Your freezer is your friend on this, and the toppings are unlimited as you use your imagination. Leftovers should be kept in the freezer, and they should be eaten soon after being taken out, as they tend to fall off the sticks if left out too long.
Here's a fabulous dessert to make for festive gatherings this fall! The filling is a combination of New York style cheesecake and pumpkin pie. The crust features rolled oats and finely chopped walnuts. Simply spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg, altogether, it's divine!!
Don't expect a classic, heavy cheesecake taste with this one! It's more of a parfait to me - and so wonderful. The creamy, dreamy texture is sure to please. It can be made with or without a 'crust'. I chose to make mine with a Ladyfinger (look for my recipe) bottom and sides, so I used a 9 inch pan instead of 8 inch. This is the only cheesecake I've made that didn't crack! :)
I feel sad for anyone who has never been to a Cheesecake Factory restaurant. This cheesecake is out of this world! I think you will find the nut crust quite unusual. Sometimes I double the crust portion of the recipe just so I can have a thicker crust.
I served this appetizer with a mixture of crackers at our Zaar pot luck tapas party ........ everybody said that it was delicious! I used a mixture of Roquefort & Blue cheese. If your food processor isn't large enough, use an electric mixer on low speed.
