  • Ricotta Cheese Pie

Our Mom, made this sweet lemony pie for decades. It is much like a cheesecake, only lighter.

  • 4 extra large eggs at room temperature
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1½ pounds whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 1 Tbs. lemon extract
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 c. chopped walnuts, optional


  • STEP 1
    Preheat oven to 300 F.
  • STEP 2
    Break eggs into a large bowl & blend with an electric mixer. Add the sugar, cream cheese & ricotta, beat until smooth. Add the lemon extract & lemon zest, stir well. Stir in walnuts.
  • STEP 3
    Pour the batter into a greased 23cmx23cm glass baking dish. Place dish in the center of the preheated oven. Bake for 1½ hour, until the pie is set & the edges are golden. Allow to remain in oven for approximately another 30 mins. with the oven turned off to ensure a well set pie.
  • STEP 4
    (The pie will collapse some as it cooks, but the slow cooking ensures a steadier center.)
  • STEP 5
    Allow to cool to room temperature, refrigerate.
  • STEP 6
    Enjoy with friends & family!
