“This is an Italian take on cheesecake, only so much richer. It was always served by my grandma at Christmas, and it's the perfect dessert to end a holiday meal!”

Original recipe yields 16 servings

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Beat the eggs, sugar, lemon zest, and vanilla together in a mixing bowl until light colored and fluffy, about 10 minutes. Pour in the milk and cream; continue beating to make a smooth mixture. Stir in the ricotta cheese and cherries until evenly blended. Pour into the pie shells.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C), and bake until set, about 50 minutes more. Cool on racks. When pies are completely cool, dust with confectioners' sugar, and decorate by placing 1 whole cherry in the center of each pie.

I halfed this recipe and served it at a Christmas party with friends. The ricotta made a very nice texture, with good flavor, but we did not care too much for the candied cherries. I think it would be just fine without them.

I made this for easter and instead of using cherries I used a can of crushed pineapple~What a fabulous pie!!! My husband has requested it for his birthday instead of cake!!! Top it with some whipped cream and strawberries...I think I'll do that next!!

This pie was nice for something different to make for the holidays. I followed the directions as they were except I omitted the candied cherries. It came out really well, my family really liked it. The lemon flavor was really a nice touch because without it the pie wouldn't have had much flavor.
