Lorella, our children’s Italian babysitter, has quite a sweet tooth and periodically feels the irresistible urge to make a dessert, an urge we, of course, enthusiastically encourage. This is one of her particularly well-received creations. Amaretti cookies give this ricotta cake a distinctive flavor and texture. It is also quick and simple to prepare.
The cake will keep 1 to 2 days in the refrigerator.
