“Where there’s a whisk there’s a way!”

Ingredients

Crust

200 gr (1 cups) flour

100 gr (½ cup) sugar

100 gr (½ cup) butter – softened

1 egg

Filling

250 gr (1 cup) ricotta cheese

100 gr (½ cup) sugar

2 egg yolks

2 lemons’ zest

Directions

On your work surface area, combine flour, sugar, butter (softened) and egg. Knead the dough until smooth and soft. Cover in plastic wrap and let rest in the fridge while you make the cream filling.

For the filling, combine the ricotta cheese and the sugar, add the egg yolks and then the lemon zest.

Spread the dough in the pan, with sides, leaving some dough to cover the top.

Fill the pie with the cream and then cover with the remaining spread out dough.

Bake for around 35′ or until the top turns slightly brown.

Let it cool and sprinkle with powdered sugar and thinly sliced almonds (optional).

Cheers,
