A cheesecake wrapped in pastry???
Yes!! This is a ricotta cheesecake in a pastry. It is the yummiest cheesecake I know and a knock off of the one from Pasticceria Papa in Haberfield. I first had this cheesecake (the original from Pasticceria Papa) at my sisters baby shower around 11 years ago. It was the best thing I had ever tasted. I used to beg my sister to get one for me every time I was visiting her. To my disappointment she always refused because it was “too far to travel”. There was nothing else for me to do except make my own. Luckily making my own still gives me a gourmet product at about 1/4 of the cost of buying one.
I’ve made this recipe on quite a few occasions and it never fails to impress. Give it a try, it’s not as hard as it looks. If you’re celebrating a special occasion, you could also make an easy but beautiful looking Pavlova as well.
