ITALIAN CREAM CHEESE AND RICOTTA CHEESECAKE
This is my grandmother's cheesecake recipe passed down to my entire family. It's the best. I can't believe I'm sharing it, but everyone needs to know how to make an authentic Italian cheesecake. It is creamy and not thick, which is why our family LOVES it! For best results, do NOT substitute any ingredients with low-fat unless you've made it before and want to experiment.

ITALIAN (RICOTTA) CHEESECAKE
This is the recipe I have used for years to make "Italian" cheese cake. It is a wonderful, basic cheese cake which easily lends itself to "variations".

Yield 1 12inch cheese cake, 12 serving(s)
Number Of Ingredients 10
- Preheat oven to 425°F.
- Butter bottom and sides of a 12-inch springform pan.
- Sprinkle bottom and sides of well buttered pan with Graham cracker crumbs.
- In a large bowl, beat drained ricotta until very smooth.
- Gradually add 1 1/2 cups sugar and egg yolks, beating after each addition.
- Beat in flour, lemon rind, and vanilla.
- In a small bowl, beat cream until cream holds its shape, but is not too stiff.
- In a smaller bowl, beat egg whites with remaining sugar until stiff; combine with whipped cream and fold into ricotta mixture.
- Pour mixture into prepared pan.
- Bake for 10 minutes.
- Lower oven temperature to 350°F and bake 1 hour.
- Turn off heat and allow cake to cool in oven with door closed (about 3-4 hours).
- Remove cooled cake from oven, carefully remove sides of pan, store cake (well wrapped) in refrigerator.
- Before serving, lightly sprinkle top of cake with Confectioner's (powdered, 10X) sugar.
- Cake may be served chilled or at room temperature.
- Note: Center of cheese cake will be lower than the sides when it is cooled.
- This is not a defect!
- It is supposed to be this way (makes it easier to hold the topping if you choose to use one).
- VARIATIONS: Add raisins, chopped citron or chopped maraschino cherries to the batter.
- Top cheese cake with crushed sugared strawberries or cherries before serving.
- Cover bottom of crumbed pan with drained, sweetened crushed pineapple, applesauce or sliced apples before adding batter to pan.
- Pie crust pastry may be used instead of Graham crumbs to line pan.

- Add eggs, 1 at a time, and whisk to combine. Add the vanilla and salt.
- Pour batter into the prepared pan. Bake in the center of the oven for about 55 to 60 minutes, until a light golden color. Make sure the center is fairly firm and the point of a sharp knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

ORANGE RICOTTA CHEESECAKE
Since there is no crust to contend with, this rustic Italian-style orange-scented cheesecake is incredibly simple to whip together. More delicate in texture than its iconic diner-display-case relative, it has a fine dusting of pistachios and confectioners' sugar that gives it a pretty finish.

- Position an oven rack to the bottom third of the oven and preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
- Spread the pistachios out on a baking sheet and bake until golden and toasted, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a heat-safe plate to cool, then pulse them in a food processor until very finely ground. Transfer the ground pistachios to a small bowl and set aside.
- Set a 9-inch springform pan on top of a piece of parchment paper and trace a circle around it. Cut out the circle and set aside. Generously grease the bottom and sides of the pan with the room temperature butter, then press the parchment circle into the bottom of the pan.
- Put the ricotta and 2/3 cup sugar in the bowl of food processor and process until the mixture is smooth, about 30 seconds. Transfer the ricotta mixture to a large bowl and whisk in the eggs yolks, orange zest and juice and the vanilla.
- In another large bowl, add the egg whites and whip using an electric mixer on medium-high speed until the eggs become foamy. Sprinkle in the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar and continue to whip the egg whites until medium peaks form, about 2 minutes. Use a rubber spatula to fold 1/3 of the beaten whites into the ricotta mixture until just incorporated and a few white streaks remain. Gently fold in the remaining whipped egg whites, folding until there are no white streaks remaining.
- Pour the mixture into the prepared springform pan and set it on a baking sheet. Bake until the cheesecake is light golden brown and the sides begin to pull away from the pan, 55 minutes to about 1 hour and 5 minutes. Transfer the cheesecake to a cooling rack and let it cool completely, about 1 hour. Cover the pan with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 2 hours and up to 2 days before serving.
- To serve, run a thin knife or spatula around the cake to release it from the sides, then unclasp the latch of the pan. Dust the top of the cake with confectioners' sugar and sprinkle with the finely ground pistachios. Set the cheesecake on a cake platter, slice and serve.
This no-crust cheesecake has a light texture and a rich, eggy flavor. It will rise like a souffle in the oven and then fall during the last 10 minutes or so of baking. To save time, I utilize the food processor and the electric mixer - a little extra cleanup, but I'm able to whip the egg whites and mix the batter without washing and drying the bowl of my mixer during preparation.

- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Spray the springform pan with cooking spray. Separate the eggs, placing the whites in one of the large bowls and the yolks in the work bowl of a food processor.
- Add the sugar and vanilla to the work bowl of the food processor and process until thick and light yellow, about 1 minute. Add the ricotta and zest and process until smooth, another 30 seconds. Scrape the mixture into the other large bowl.
- Beat the whites on high speed with the mixer until they hold stiff peaks. Fold the whites into the ricotta mixture and scrape into the prepared pan, smoothing the top with the spatula.
- Bake until the cake is deep golden brown and the sides begin to pull away from the pan, about 1 hour and 20 minutes. Transfer to the rack to let cool completely. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until serving, at least 6 hours and up to 1 day. To serve, release the sides of the springform pan, dust with confectioners' sugar using the strainer, and cut into wedges.
This is the easiest cheesecake to make-it takes just 15 minutes to assemble and doesn't require a water bath. When berries are in season, you can serve them instead of the compote.
