Meant to be enjoyed with a good cup of coffee and great conversation.

  • Yields: 6
  • Preparation: 130 minutes

Ingredients

Filling

  • 2 cups (500mL) SALERNO - Traditional Ricotta
  • 1 cup (250mL) sugar
  • 1 tbsp (15mL) all purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp (1.2mL) lemon peel, grated
  • 1/4 tsp (1.2mL) orange peel
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp (10mL) vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp (10mL) vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup (75mL) semi-sweet chocolate
  • 1/3 cup (75mL) candied citron
  • 1/8 tsp (.6mL) ground cinnamon

Crust

  • 1 2/3 cup (400mL) all purpose flour
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup (62.5mL) shortening
  • 1/4 cup (62.5mL) butter
  • 1/4 tsp (1mL) baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp (2mL) salt
  • 2 tbsp (30mL) sugar

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder; cut in butter and shortening until mixture resembles small crumbs. Add eggs; stir until moistened and mixture forms a ball. Cover and refrigerate for one hour.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to a 10” circle. Place in a 9” pie plate and flute the crust. Refrigerate.
  3. For filling, beat the Salerno Ricotta Cheese, sugar and flour in a mixing bowl. Add peels and salt; beat until smooth.
  4. In another bowl, beat eggs until thick and lemon-coloured, about 5 minutes, and slowly fold into ricotta mixture. Gently mix in remaining ingredients.
  5. Pour into the crust.
  6. Bake at 350°F for 55 minutes or until a knife inserted near the centre comes out clean.
  7. Cool. Store in the refrigerator.
