Eli's Ricotta Cheesecake {Review}

I love supporting local businesses and one of my favorite Chicago area food companies is Eli's Cheesecake. When I heard they were going to include some gluten free cheesecakes to their product line I was beyond thrilled! So the lovely folks of Eli's Cheesecake generously sent me one of their gluten free cheesecakes to try. Their Ricotta Cheesecake starts with an gluten free almond crust that's filled with a light and heavenly cheesecake baked to perfection...

I really enjoyed this cheesecake and appreciate the effort they have made to include gluten free desserts in their product line. I've been a fan for years and can't rave enough about Eli's. The ricotta cheesecake wasn't too sweet and the almond crust was delicious, if not more flavorful that the usual graham cracker crust many other cheesecakes are made of. The ricotta cheesecake also serves as a great canvas for a topping such as cherry, strawberry, apple, or even chocolate or caramel. 

If you're looking for a dessert to share on your holiday table, or any time for that matter, Eli's Cheesecake is a great option. They can ship their delicious cheesecakes, cakes, pastries and other desserts within the U.S., including Alaska and Hawaii... and all orders are shipped with dry ice in heavy duty styrofoam containers to ensure they arrive at safe temperatures.
