recipe: easter ricotta pie

Easter Ricotta Pie

Ingredients:

(For the pie crust)
1 ½ cup all-purpose flour
½ tsp salt
¼ cup coconut oil
⅛ cup butter, cold
10 tbsp cold water (approximately)

(For the filling)
2 cups ricotta cheese
4 large eggs
⅓ cup granulated sugar
1 tsp lemon zest
Squeeze of lemon juice

Steps:

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. 1. For the crust- combine flour and salt in a medium bowl. Add the coconut oil and butter. Mix well. Then add water one tablespoon at a time. The dough should mostly form a ball, with some flakier chunks that don’t quick stick. (Crumbly over sticky preferred.)

2. Transfer dough to floured surface. Using a floured rolling pin, roll out the dough to just cover a 9” pie pan. Trim edges.

3. For the filling- combine all ingredients into a large bowl. Mix well. Then pour filling evenly onto prepared crust. Bake in oven for 45-50 minutes or until surface of pie feels firm to the touch.

4. Remove and let cool. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Top with powdered sugar or whipped cream if so desired!
