The Fan-Favorite Trader Joe's Dessert Cheese That Can Be Difficult To Find
By Stacie Adams
Among Trader Joe's pantheon of desserts is Baked Lemon Ricotta Cheese. The delicious dessert cheese is found in select stores during winter, specifically around the holiday season.
It's possible to find it at other times of the year, namely during the late spring, depending on whether your location stocks the item and if you can get it before it sells out.
In addition to the tanginess of the lemon, the cheese has a gorgeous texture thanks to the inclusion of ricotta.
Retailing for $13.99 per pound, Trader Joe's Baked Lemon Ricotta Cheese has a cloud-like texture and a mild, vaguely nutty taste — a perfect backdrop for the lemon.
This dessert cheese can be enjoyed with crackers, fruit, or just eaten on its own. Although it's a seasonal item, it may be at your Trader Joe's location, waiting to be picked up.
