–For the crust:– 1 1/2 cups of graham cracker crumb– 1/4 cup of granulated sugar– 6 tablespoons of melted butterFor the filling:– 2 cups of whole milk ricotta cheese– 1 cup of powdered sugar– 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract– Zest of 1 lemon– 1 cup of heavy cream, whipped to stiff peak
In a mixing bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, granulated sugar, and melted butter. Mix until well combined and the mixture resembles wet sand.
Press the mixture into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan, creating an even layer. Place the pan in the refrigerator to chill while you prepare the filling.
In another mixing bowl, beat together the ricotta cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and lemon zest until smooth and creamy.
Gently fold in the whipped cream until fully incorporated into the ricotta mixture.
Remove the springform pan from the refrigerator and pour the filling over the chilled crust. Use a spatula to smooth the top.
Cover the cheesecake with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight, to allow it to set.
Once the cheesecake has set, carefully remove it from the springform pan and transfer it to a serving plate.
Slice and serve chilled, optionally garnished with fresh berries or a dusting of powdered sugar.
