Glazed Ricotta with Vanilla Bean

  • SERVINGS: 4
  • BASIC-EASY
  • FAST

One of the best ways to appreciate the complex aroma of vanilla is to steep bean scrapings in cream or a mild fresh cheese like ricotta, then serve the cream or cheese as, or with, a dessert.

  1. 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  2. 1 vanilla bean, split and scraped
  3. 1 pound fresh ricotta cheese
  4. 2 egg yolks
  5. Fresh fruit, for serving
  1. Preheat the broiler. In a small saucepan, warm the maple syrup with the vanilla bean scrapings; let cool slightly. In a bowl, mix the ricotta with the syrup. Whisk in the egg yolks until blended. Spread the ricotta in 4 shallow 5-inch gratin dishes and broil 6 inches from the heat, rotating the dishes as necessary to glaze the ricotta evenly. Serve with fresh fruit.

Suggested Pairing

Go for a light, fruity, not-too-sweet Muscat-based wine.
