I love ricotta, citrus flavors and cheesecake filling so is it any wonder that I love these Tangerine Ricotta Bars which tick all of these boxes. These citrus treats get their tangerine flavor from a mix of tangerine juice and zest. This means that the flavor is more subtle than the more traditional lemon bars.

To make these, start by preparing the crust by mixing flour, sugar and salt with melted butter. Press the filling into a baking dish. Move on to the filling while the crust bakes. Beat all of the ingredients together with an electric mixer. Pour the filling onto the cooled crust and bake again until the filling sets. Leave to cool completely before cutting into squares.

To make the Tangerine Ricotta Bars, you will need the following ingredients:
