Author Notes: I recently had a cannoli made with sheep's milk ricotta, it was really good. So I decided to use it in this recipe. Standard milk ricotta works well too. Also feel free to substitute walnuts for other toppings: strawberries, cherries, shaved chocolate, pistachios ... Flirty Foodie


Makes 2

  • 9 ounces sheep's milk ricotta (or cow's milk), drained
  • 1/2 cup cream, well chilled
  • 5 tablespoons honey, divided
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • zest of 1/2 lemon
  1. Using an electric hand mixer, whip cream in a medium bowl until it forms firm peaks.
  2. In a separate bowl whip together ricotta, 3 tbsp honey and lemon zest until smooth. Carefully fold whipped cream into ricotta mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes to an 1 hour.
  3. Gather two serving bowl/cups. Spoon a layer of whipped ricotta into each bowl. Followed by a layer of honey, approx. 1 tbsp honey per dish. Top with remaining whipped ricotta. Garnish with chopped walnuts. Serve and Enjoy
