“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.”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Move an oven rack to the middle of the oven.
  2. Beat the cream cheese, ricotta cheese, and sugar in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer until well combined. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Add the butter, flour, cornstarch, and vanilla extract; mix until well combined. Fold in the sour cream and lemon juice. Pour the mixture into an ungreased 10-inch springform pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour. Turn off the oven and leave the cheesecake in the oven for 2 more hours. Remove from oven and let cool completely. Run a thin spatula around the edge of the cheesecake before springing open the pan to remove. Serve at room temperature or cold; refrigerate leftovers.

THIS IS THE RECIPE I'VE USED FOR 30 YEARS. DON'T CHANGE A THING. IT IS DELICIOUS & GETS RAVES WHENEVER I TAKE IT SOMEWHERE. AND IT'S NOT DIFFICULT, ALTHOUGH EVERYONE THINKS IT IS!!

What a creamy delicious, not too sweet hit! I always use LITE cream cheese and sour cream. I also cut the recipe in half, since there's just two of us. And I made a delicious cinnamon graham cracker crust that I found on this website (just added cinnamon to it)! Oh, this was so yummy. My husband is still drooling. I baked it on 300 for 1 hour. I didn't even care that it cracked a little right in the middle, so that's where I sliced it!

I have been making this and the lemon taste does not shine through. It is wonderful as written. Although I use 1/2 cup melted butter and cooled, as posted on this site under Italian cream cheese and ricotta cheesecake submitted by April.
