Baked Sweet Ricotta Cheese (Sicilian baked cheesecake) with Pistachio

This desert is a pistachio version of my Sicilian baked cheesecake (recipe here). You can also add some pistachio liquor for a more strong flavor.

The absence of wheat and flour make it suitable for people who cannot take gluten.

On this website, you can also find a chocolate version of this delicious dessert (recipe here).
