Grandma's Recipe Box: #8 Ricotta Pie

Just as cookie baking commences during Christmas time, in Italian households, pie making occurs around Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday.

This is a very old recipe, so there are many different variations. For me, the ground clove in this recipe is what makes the pie so memorable.

Ingredients:

3 lbs. ricotta

4 eggs

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 tbsp. vanilla extract

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. ground cloves

1 tbsp. cocoa

Grated chocolate

Method:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix all ingredients throoughly. Pour into prepared pie crust and top with crust. Brush with beaten egg. When cool dust with conectioner's suger.
