This creamy cheesecake is simple and delicious. We love having it all year-round, but we particularly enjoy serving it on the 4th of July for a tasty, festive dose of red, white, and blue. It features part-skim ricotta cheese, ground nutmeg, and fresh blueberries and raspberries. This cheesecake comes together super-easily, as most of the recipe time is for hands-off baking. Though we love the red, white, and blue color contrast, you can also decorate this pie with any combination of berries you prefer. Or we recommend opting for freshly sliced stone fruits like peaches, apricots, and nectarines—the possibilities are endless.
