Kahlua Ricotta Cheese Charlotte Recipe

Welcome to the first Monday, Mmm ... Dessert, where you can share dessert recipes.  It's brand new, so "Tell a Friend" as Alan Hamel of the old Alpha Beta and Acme commercials used to say.  He's Suzanne Somers' husband in case these didn't air in your state.

I'm sharing with you one of my easiest dessert recipes.  I make it when I invite guests because it's very quick to fix, and it needs to be prepared the day before, so there's no last minute rush.  Everyone always raves too, which is very important, not so much for the ego, but because happy guests will want to come back again.

Leave your recipe in the linky below, and tell a friend.

Kahlua Ricotta Cheese Charlotte Recipe
1 1/2 lbs. ricotta cheese
1 1/4 cup finest granulated sugar
1/4 cup Kahlua
1/4 cup candied fruits, chopped
1/4 cup almonds, blanched
24 ladyfinger cookies

Beat ricotta, sugar, and Kahlua until smooth.  Mix in fruits and nuts.  Butter a round 1 1/2 quart springform cake pan.  Line bottom and sides with ladyfingers.  Pour in cheese mixture, and cover top with remaining ladyfingers.  Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight.  Turn out on cake stand.
