I like to use ricotta cheese as it is not too heavy and has a nice and creamy texture to it. I made a simple dessert with just ricotta cheese and sugar. It is a quick and easy recipe. Sometimes I fill it up in a puff pastry, bake it and then brush a little honey with rose syrup just before serving.
1 cup low fat ricotta cheese
1/4 cup or less sugar
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
1 pinch of saffron
a few roasted and chopped almonds
MethodMix the ricotta cheese, sugar and saffron in a bowl. Spread the mixture in an oven proof dish in a thin layer and bake at 350 degrees for about 10-15 minutes. Keep checking to make sure it doesn't burn. Remove from the oven and break or crumble it into pieces. Add the chopped almonds and cardamom.
