  • Summary

    Rice pie (along with Ricotta pie) is our family's traditional Easter dessert. Like many Italian desserts, it is simple and not very sweet. The rice settles to the bottom leaving a custard-like layer on top. A very satisfying dessert. A dollop of sweetened whip cream is a perfect topper. Enjoy!

    Ingredients

    • 1 1/3 c cooked rice, cooled/room temp. (recommend: arborio)
    • 3/4 c sugar
    • 2/3 c ricotta cheese (recommend: Sorrento velvety smooth whole milk ricotta)
    • 4 eggs
    • 1 pt half & half
    • 1 tsp vanilla
    • 1/2 tsp lemon juice, fresh
    • 2 dash(es) cinnamon (1 dash in batter, 1 dash on top)
    • 1 9-10" pie crust (homemade or pillsbury refrigerated pie crust)
