7. Ricotta Cheesecake

Although we love to indulge in a rich, thick cheesecake, we equally love to enjoy a lighter, airier version of the dessert. When made with ricotta, cheesecake takes on a fluffier texture and becomes lower in fat content for those who would like to go for the second slice with less of the guilt!
