Vodka is one of my favorite drinks; I'm a big fan of vodka drinks and cocktails. But recently, the world of cooking with alcohol has been introduced to me. Since I'm new to this, I've been looking for easy recipes online to practice on. Then I stumbled upon this cheesecake topped with vodka-marmalade glaze! Wow, doesn't that sound wonderful? Who doesn’t love a Creamsicle: vanilla ice cream wrapped in orange ice? Now take those flavors, whip them together with ricotta and a bit of vodka, and you’ve got an adult cheesecake that’s elegant yet still strikes a nostalgic chord. Orange-Vanilla Ricotta Cheesecake Ingredients For the crust: 

1 1/4 cups pecan shortbread cookie crumbs, from about 11 cookies
