Rasmalai Recipe

Sweet Ricotta Squares with Nuts and Creamy Sauce

In a bowl, mix together until very smooth:
16 ounces (2 cups) ricotta cheese
1/2 - 1 cup sugar
Pour into an 8" square baking dish, and place in a preheated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes. Continue to bake another 10-20 minutes, checking the mixture every 5 minutes until it separates form the sides of the pan. Remove and cool.
Bring to a boil in a saucepan:
2 cups half and half
1/4 teaspon cardamom powder (opt.)
1/4 teaspoon saffron (opt.)
Cut the baked ricotta into serving-sized squares, and place in a deep serving dish.
Sprinkle with:
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pour the half and half evenly over the squares, and allow to soak.
Serve topped with:
1 cup silvered unsalted almonds (or unsalted pistachios, unsalted walnuts, or a mixture of those nuts)
If you want to decrease the richness of this dessert, you can use regular or 2% milk instead of half and half in the sauce. Your sauce will be thinner, but will still be tasty. You can also subsitute non-fat ricotta; the texture will be drier, but the dessert will still be flavorful.
