Honey Ricotta Cheesecake

前不久在电视里看到意大利老太婆做了个ricotta cheesecake, 看起来竟然像不需要等冷藏什么的, 十分好奇, 于是去买了一大盒ricotta cheese回来搜recipe…发现被电视魔法愚弄了……不过也没法子, 巨大一盒ricotta cheese已经买了, 只好找法子做掉.
于是照这个方子做了一个honey ricotta cheesecake:

ricotta cheese的质地貌似比较干粉, 不像cream cheese或者marscopone那么creamy, 所以做cheesecake的时候常常要和这两种creamy的之一混合起来. 悲桑的是我买的还是part skim的, 不是whole milk的ricotta, 于是大概更干粉. 于是我做的时候还自作主张加了点sour cream甚至一咪咪heavy cream.另外我总觉得弄不够那个orange zest, 于是使劲刮了两个橙子的zest, 结果烤出来发现橙子味几乎”太重”了, 有点不够balanced的感觉. 不过蛋糕本身还是算比较creamy的.

Ingredients

* 8 ounces purchased biscotti
* 6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, melted
* 1 (12-ounce) container fresh whole milk ricotta, drained
* 2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, room temperature
* 3/4 cup sugar
* 1/4 cup orange blossom or clover honey
* 1 tablespoon orange zest
* 4 large eggs

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Wrap the outside of a 9-inch springform pan with 2 3/4-inch-high sides with 2 layers of heavy-duty foil. Finely grind the biscotti in a food processor. Add the melted butter and process until the crumbs are moistened. Press the crumb mixture over the bottom (not the sides) of the prepared pan. Bake until the crust is golden, about 15 minutes. Cool the crust completely on a cooling rack.

Blend the ricotta in a clean food processor until smooth. Add the cream cheese and sugar and blend well, stopping the machine occasionally and scraping down the sides of the work bowl. Blend in the honey and orange zest. Add the eggs and pulse just until blended.

Pour the cheese mixture over the crust in the pan. Place the springform pan in a large roasting pan. Pour enough hot water into the roasting pan to come halfway up the sides of the springform pan. Bake until the cheesecake is golden and the center of the cake moves slightly when the pan is gently shaken, about 1 hour and 5 minutes (the cake will become firm when it is cold).

Transfer the cake to a rack and cool 1 hour. Refrigerate until the cheesecake is cold, at least 8 hours and up to 2 days. Cut the cake into wedges and serve.
