Featuring Yoko quality culinary matcha
Ricotta was last minute delicious addition honestly because i didn’t have enough cream cheese in the fridge, but it made this so light and fluffy! Same with the oreo cookies: all I had were the boys forgotten oreo cookies leftover in the pantry, but you can use oats, graham crackers, nuts, any kind of cookie for the crust – so get creative!
This is a pretty straightforward recipe. I used a cupcake pan, but if you have mini cheesecake pan use that (i bet none of you do lol). You can also make this is a springform pan for one large cheesecake.
