Rus Malai

If you are familiar with Indian sweets, you are probably accustomed to them being sticky, sugary, and spongy; all the things I don't like about them.  So needless to say, I'm not a huge fan of Indian sweets. At least not unless my mom's made it for me.  She seems to know just how to adjust her sweet recipes so that I like it.  I have such a great mom!  Her Rus Malai is one of my favorites and is SO EASY! 

Imagine cheesecake, without the tanginess, soaking in fragrant, sweetened milk.  So good!

2 lb Ricotta Cheese
2 1/2 c. Sugar
1 qt. Half & Half
1/4 tsp Saffron

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Mix ricotta and 2 c. sugar and pour into baking dish.  Bake in oven for about 20-30 minutes. 

Meanwhile, combine half and half, remaining sugar, and saffron.  Bring to boil on medium heat, then let cool.

Remove ricotta from oven when edges are golden brown and let cool.  Cut into squares.  Pour half and half over the ricotta and refrigerate for a few hours.
