    The lemon flavor here is subtle -- if you like lemony desserts, you might consider adding more zest and juice to the compote and ricotta. (I added the juice of 1 whole lemon to the cranberry/sugar mixture, and the juice of 1 lemon to the ricotta mixture.) The compote was fairly sweet, and its consistency made me feel like I was eating jelly -- not a bad thing, but something to consider. Overall, a tasty dessert, but not sure I would make it again.
