CATABRIAN CHEESECAKES (Quesada Pasiega)

Quesada Pasiega is a crustless lemon -flavored cheesecake from the Cantabria region of Spain that is perfect as a light dessert or an afternoon snack. It is made with fresh farmer’s cheese, such as requesón or Burgos, but ricotta and cottage cheese are a good substitute. To serve, top with grated sugar-free dark chocolate or, if you prefer, fresh berries. For a more distinctive, traditional taste, sprinkle with cinnamon.
