Description

Here’s an authentic Italian cheesecake, made with creamy ricotta and without any crust. Instead, sliced almonds sprinkled on top offer the desired bit of crunchy contrast. And unlike more familiar types of cheesecake, this one is ready in about an hour, with no overnight chilling required. It is just as creamy and delicious as you’d expect it to be, and pairs perfectly with an espresso, as a not-too-sweet finale to the meal.
