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 1½ 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.
