Red Berry Cheesecake

This cheesecake combines the sweet tartness of your favourite red berries – such as cherries, raspberries or strawberries – with the rich creaminess of ricotta and the almond taste of the Amaretti biscuit base. Steeping the berries in almond liqueur keeps the underlying nutty flavour consistent throughout this irresistible pudding.
