We have wicked weather here today and we have praying that our electricity stays on. So far-so good!
Mom decided to make a Christmas Ricotta Pie this year for Christmas Eve dinner.
Mom rarely makes a pie crust from scratch because it's so aggravating getting the crust off the counter once it's rolled out. Pie crusts were gram's specialty. They came out perfect every single time.
One 9-inch pie crust.
Mix together 2 pounds of ricotta, one cup of granulated sugar, four eggs, one tablespoon grated orange peel, one half cup dried cranberries, one half cup chopped almonds, one half cup chocolate chips, two teaspoons rum extract, one teaspoon vanilla extract and one half teaspoon cinnamon.
Bake at 350 degrees for approximately one hour and twenty minutes.
The pie is ready to go into the oven but not before I get to lick the spatula!
It's out of the oven! Mom will sprinkle it with confectionary sugar after it has cooled.
Happy Friday, everybuddy!
Love ya lots♥
