250g tub ricotta
3 medium free-range eggs, beaten

- Preheat the oven to 180/350F/Gas 4. Place the biscuits in a food processor and pulse to make fine crumbs. Mix in the melted butter and press into a 20cm-round loose-bottomed cake tin. Place on a baking tray and bake for five minutes.
- Meanwhile, cook the cherries in the brandy for five minutes, then cool slightly.
- Whisk the soft cheese, ricotta, eggs and sugar together. Gently stir in the cherries and liquid to give a marbled effect. Pour over the biscuit base and bake for 50-60 minutes until just set. Allow to cool completely before removing from the tin. Chill for 1-2 hours before serving topped with the cherries and a dusting of icing sugar.
