Italian Cheesecake II
This is a sweet, moist chocolate chip cheesecake with a hint of citrus and anise flavors. It is made with Ricotta cheese instead of cream cheese. This dessert has been an Easter tradition in my family since before my father was born. The recipe makes a lot, but it can easily be cut in half for smaller groups. Sprinkle additional chocolate chips on top of the cheesecakes before baking if desired.
