Passionfruit and ricotta cheesecake (Cheesecake de Maracuyá)









Finally after another week a little hectic,  I'm happy to be here and to share my recipe for Valentine's Day!

I did something different this year: A passion fruit cheesecake with ricotta and must say it is a delicious recipe.

Is better  doing at night and cut the next day,  is the best because it kept refrigerated.

Happy Valentine's Day to all of you!
