Nana’s Ricotta Pie

Crust:

  • 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

Filling:

  • 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.
