"This recipe was given to me by my Italian mother-in-law. It is the type of crustless cheesecake that is sold in Italian bakeries in New York. I usually make it with whole-milk ricotta which is creamier than low fat. This is not a diet item! You can add fresh fruit topping if you desire."

High altitude trials: I live at 5600+ ft. You MUST increase the flour & corn starch or it's too watery. I tried 4 Tbl each, and it was still too creamy in the center. Suggest a total of 9.5 Tbl ...
