Blueberry-Ricotta Squares

Submitted by: TIME4JUDI

Introduction

Not quite cheescake, but VERY yummy Not quite cheescake, but VERY yummy
Number of Servings: 16

Ingredients

    1 cup flour
    3/4 cup sugar
    1-1/4 tsp baking powder
    1/4 tsp salt

    1/3 cup nonfat milk
    1/4 cup shortening
    1 egg
    1/2 tsp vanilla extract

    1-1/2 cups fresh blueberries (you can substitute partially thawed frozen blueberries)

    2 eggs
    1-1/4 cups part skim ricotta cheese
    1/3 cup sugar
    1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Directions

In a small bowl combine first four ingredients (flour - salt). Add next four (milk - vanilla). Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until combined. Beat on medium speed one minute. Pour into greased 9x9x2 pan; spread evenly. Sprinkle blueberries over batter.

In a medium bowl mix remaining 2 eggs with a fork. Add ricotta, sugar and vanilla, beat until combined. Pour over blueberries and spread evenly.

Bake at 350 for 55 to 60 minutes, or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool and cut into 16 squares. Store, covered, in the refrigerator. Good warm; extra-yummy cold!

I have never tried substituting Splenda for sugar or egg whites instead or whole eggs, but I am betting it could easily be done in this recipe!

    This was delicious! I used canola oil for the shortening. Used one whole egg and two whites for the ricotta part, but next time I might try using 4 egg whites or Egg Beaters. This recipe is a real keeper. Thanks for sharing it with us Judi! - 1/8/08

    They didn't really look that appetizing and they definitely couldn't pass for a cheesecake alternative, but they were decent. - 8/5/08

  • Judi,
    These were delicious! I made them with splenda and used Smart Balance Spread instead of shortening and they were sill yummy, so I bet your original version was even better! My Dad ate 5 or 6 of them! - 12/4/07
