Cooking Tools
Mixing bowl

In a mixing bowl, add; Ricotta cheese, sugar, nutmeg, orange zest and Cointreau, (you can omit the alcohol).  Whip ingredients with a whisk until creamy and smooth.  Fold in fruit and almond slices gently, and just coat enough of the fruit with the cheese mixture.  Over mixing will bruise the delicate fruit and the fruit will start to bleed their color into the cheese mixture. Place in serving dishes and sprinkle with the chocolate shavings.  Garnish with a raspberry and place in refrigerator for 1 hour to chill before serving.
Serves 4
