pineapple ricotta cheesecake recipe

Hi HillJ, Yes my Mother used fresh ricotta cheese and canned crushed pineapple. This recipes picture looks very similar to what my Mother made and she did put cinnamon on top. I'm excited to try this recipe. My poor family is going to be so sick and tired of pineapple cheesecake. Lol

I am really happy I found Chowhound because in all the years I 've searched the internet and checked out blogs I've never had as many replies as I have had for this cheesecake. Very refreshing to have all you cooks suggesting things. I just may figure out this recipe yet. What you said about using the cheese cloth over night makes sence because her filling was more on the dry side and the Soprano recipe was not on the dry side. Did you Mom make this also?

Really? Everyone thought it didn't have much flavor to the filling.

Hi Tehama, Made the cheesecake for Easter. Wasn't real happy with the taste of it. Not a lot of flavor to the cake I think it needed more sugar and more flavoring in general. I followed the recipe exactly even using fresh ricotta not packaged. I wouldn't make it again. Thanks for posting the recipe though.

Cookies that don't go flat

Wow great answer I do sometimes use insulated baking sheets and always use butter. I switched to non-hydrongenated shortening but haven't tried that in the chocolate chip cookies or even the oatmeat cookies. I'll let everyone know if that helps.

Wouldn't cake or pastry flour make the cookies more tender?

Thank you Critter101 this is the closest I've had yet, except the pineapple was in the ricotta not on top. I think I'll try this recipe but just add the pineapple to the ricotta.

Anyone know what makes cookies chunky, not flat? Mom used to make oatmeal and chocolate chip cookies but they never flattened out. Wondering if she used shortening instead of butter?

Does any one have a recipe for a pineapple ricotta cheesecake? My Mother used to make this in the 60's with a graham cracker crust. It was baked in the oven not a refrigerated cheesecake. Unfortunatley she passed away and no one has the recipe. Would appreciate it if anyone has the recipe and would post it.
