Have you ever had Ricotta Cheesecake?
I have been craving cheesecake, and while I do love the sweet creamy texture of a New York style cheesecake, every now and then its gotta be a ricotta cheesecake! I never really know what I’m going to make for the week until I look into the fridge and pantry to see what I have. Now don’t get me wrong, I do have a plan from time to time, but most of what I make is based purely on urges…lol….. I guess that is a guy thing!
I love a store with a good produce section when you walk in. And for some reason the berries are all at the front, I guess since there more perishable they want that impulse buying to start right there.
I’m usually not drawn to blackberries, I’m more of a blueberry or strawberry guy, but for some reason, they were calling out to me. I also found a bag of huge Persian limes….I do love limes!
When I got home, as I started putting everything away I noticed that I still had some ricotta and mascarpone, and I think that’s when I started thinking about putting everything together….it was fate….sigh……how could I not bake a delicious ricotta cheesecake when fate had brought all the ingredients together for me! Really, I had no choice!
So fate or not I made a delicious ricotta cheesecake, with just enough mascarpone in it to make it creamy, not quite Philly but none the less creamy and delicious!
