    Tuscan Cheesecake
    by Peter Timmons

    "A great Italian style cheesecake with a mellifluous orange flavor and beautiful texture."

    3 pounds ricotta cheese
    8 eggs
    2 cups sugar
    1 cup milk
    Freshly grated zest of 2 orange and 2 lemons
    3 ounces Grand Marnier or other orange liqueur
    1 tablespoon butter
    1/4 cup plain bread crumbs

    Preheat oven to 350 F. Beat ricotta cheese with food processor until smooth. Add eggs, sugar, and milk. Blend until well-mixed and smooth. Add orange and lemon zest and Grand Marnier. Mix well. Grease one springform pan with butter and coat lightly with bread crumbs. Fill pan with cheesecake mixture. Set pan in a larger pan filled half full with boiling water and bake 1-1/4 hours. Turn oven off, and leave the cheesecake within. Let stand for one hour. (No peaking.) Remove, let cool, and refrigerate.
