Lemon Ricotta Cream
Let me know what you think (and I'm trying out a fancy new photo trick!).
LEMON RICOTTA CREAM
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1/4 tsp. freshly grated lemon rind
1/4 tsp. lemon extract
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1 packet sweetener (I used Domino's sugar/half stevia blend, 5 calories per packet)
In small mixing bowl, thoroughly blend all ingredients. If you want to make it fancy, pipe through a pastry bag.
Grate a little extra lemon rind over the ricotta cream for a pretty finishing touch. Serve chilled.
