Lovely and delicate flavor. I did not place the shortbread in the bottom of each ramekin. As I am in the USA and cream cheese comes in 8 oz packages, I increased the ricotta to account for the 1.09 oz over 8 oz in the package of cream cheese. My ricotta was a reduced fat. Although it is very good, I will use all the cream cheese next time as it ended up a little loose. The recipe calls for 15 minutes at 315F I increased that to a full hour and for the last 15 minutes increased the oven to 350F.
