   CIBO Cheese is a goat cheese mixed with cream and other flavorings. I
   bought it at an upscale grocery store, in the deli section.
   
   Make the crust:
   
   Lightly grease a 9-inch springform pan. Process flour, salt and butter
   just until combined and crumbly in texture. Add water, 2 tablespoons
   at a time. Do not overprocess. Press evenly into pan, up 1 1/2 inches
   at the side. Allow to chill while making the filling.
   
   Make the filling:
   
   Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
   
   Combine CIBO goat cheese, ricotta, butter, eggs (adding one at a time,
   processing well after each addition), flour, salt and pepper. Pour
   filling into shell, bake until puffed and brown for 25-30 minutes.
