Mama may not have invented cheesecake, but she perfected it! Her creamy ricotta cheesecake was scented with fresh honey and the sweetest oranges, luring the neighborhood to her front door every time she baked it.
Amaretti cookie crust is topped with a sweet ricotta cheese filling, dotted with orange peel, Mama Francesca Classic Parmesan and honey, and then dusted with cinnamon and baked until creamy and golden brown.
Suggestion: Crush amaretti cookies in a large plastic bag to avoid getting crumbs everywhere.
