One of the desserts we served at Easter dinner was a Cannoli Cheesecake. This one had a delectable tender crust (made of Nilla Wafers) and a creamy and light cream cheese and ricotta base that was laced with bits of orange zest and studded with mini chocolate chips. To make it downright decadent, I smoothed a thin layer of ganache on top. See how it came together below.
First, for the crust, mix two cups of Nilla wafers
with melted butter in a food processor until it resembles wet sand.
