We’ve combined cream cheese with ricotta cheese for a creamier version of Italian cheesecake. Another great recipe from Relish Mag.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. To prepare crust, combine crumbs, butter and sugar in medium bowl. Press crust onto bottom and 1 inch up the sides of a 9-inch springform pan. Bake 10 minutes or until set. Cool before filling.
  3. To prepare filling, beat ricotta, cream cheese, sugar and flour in a large bowl with an electric mixer. Add lemon zest and vanilla; mix well.
  4. Add eggs one at a time, mixing on low speed just until blended.
  5. Pour filling into crust. Bake for 1 hour or until cake is almost set.
  6. Run a knife around rim of pan to loosen cheesecake. Cool to room temperature on a wire rack, then refrigerate at least 3 hours or overnight.
  7. To serve, remove springform side and slice. Dust with confectioners’ sugar and garnish with lemon slices.
