How to make it

  • Drain off any liquids from cheese.
  • Beat the ricotta cheese smooth and beat in 1 1/2 cups sugar and vanilla.
  • Fork beat egg yolks and beat into mixture just to combine.
  • Beat in flour and vanilla.
  • Beat whites stiff with remaining sugar and combine with whipped cream.
  • Gently fold mixture into cheese mixture.
  • Fold in cherries.
  • Place mixture in springform pan that has been well buttered and dusted well with graham cracker crumbs.
  • This is a 12 inch springform pan
  • Pour in mixture ( will almost fill to top ) .
  • Bake in a preheated 425F oven for 10 minutes and then reduce heat to 325F and bake 1 hour.
  • Turn off heat and let cake cool in the closed oven.
  • Remove pan from oven and chill overnight.
  • Note: Some crack may appear in the center of the cake especially if mixture was over beaten. Also cake may puff up a bit and fall.
  • But the overall cake is high and beautiful.

    Just beautiful, and delicious, I'm sure. What a nice change from the heavier cheesecakes, which I love, too, but this would make a nice, light version - great post, midge!
