Ricotta Pie aka Easter Cheese Pie

 By: The Food Hunter

Ricotta Pie is a traditional Italian dessert typically served on or around the Easter holiday. It is something my family has been making for as long as I can remember. And while there are many different versions of this sweet ricotta pie I am partial to the one my maternal grandma always made. 

This particular recipe makes a crust-less creamy ricotta cheese pie, infused with citrus zest (both orange and lemon), and lots of swirled cinnamon. The texture is silky smooth and the taste is out of this world!

Ricotta Pie

12 eggs
1 tsp salt
3 lbs ricotta
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
lemon and orange zest, to taste

Beat eggs well. Mix in sugar, salt, vanilla and ricotta cheese. Blend well.

Add lemon and orange zest. Pour into a prepared pan and sprinkle cinnamon on top

Bake for 50 minutes at 350
