1 pound whole milk ricotta cheese, well drained
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup slices almonds
Divide the cheese among 4 dessert plates. Warm the honey in a small saucepan or in the microwave for 10 seconds. Drizzle 2 tablespoons over the top of each plate and sprinkle with some of the almonds. Serve.
Variation: For a more elegant presentation, use 4-ounce ramekins. Line them with plastic wrap, allowing for an overhang. Divide the cheese among the ramekins and be sure to spread it evenly. Invert each ramekin onto a dessert plate and carefully peel away the plastic wrap. Drizzle on the honey, sprinkle with the almonds and serve.
