Nana’s Ricotta Pie
- 1 Tbl softened butter
- 1 egg
- 2 Tbl sugar
- 1 cup flour
Blend butter, sugar, and egg. Add flour and roll out. Put crust in greased 10 inch pie plate
- 2 lb ricotta
- 8 eggs
- ¾ cup sugar
- 1-2 tsp vanilla (I like 2 tsp)
Beat eggs in bowl. Add sugar, vanilla to eggs and to the ricotta. Pour in pie pan.
Bake 350 degrees for 1 hour or until set (it will cook like a custard pie).
*This recipe can be simplified by using a pre-made crust. The pie is great warm or cold, plain or topped with fruit topping. I personally love it chilled with blueberry topping, but Nana served it plain.
