It's basically a cheesecake, said the woman next to me. She was right. The Baked Lemon Ricotta is sold by the pound ($13.99/lb) at Murray's Cheese. It's texturally light (almost feathery!) but intense in flavor, demanding a side of sweet berries and hot black tea. The cheesy "dessert" is composed of three ingredients: buffalo milk ricotta, sugar, and fresh lemon. Creamy and tart with just a hint of sweetness.
