This is my dessert from last night, after the Superbowl game. I had picked this up at my local Italian bakery and talked my boyfriend, the hater of all things cheese, into trying it. Surprisingly he liked it and said it was good (I just about fell over LOL).
Ricotta square is basically a ricotta pie, except this bakery makes GIGANTIC square trays of them. There is a crust on both the top and the bottom and it`s a heavier dessert crust and the filling is a mixture of ricotta, lemon and sugar. The mixture is blended so well, it taste really like a dense cheesecake filling. Typically when I buy these at the bakery I tell the girl to put some powdered sugar on top, it just really brings the flavor together and adds a little more sweetness.
Definitely one of my favorite Italian pastries. That is outside of cannoli`s and lobster tails!
