Sweet Ricotta Pie

This is my first go at baking with everyone over at Tuesdays With Dorie. If you like to bake or just to look at food others make go check out the blog. It is pretty cool!

So this time we’re making Sweet Ricotta Pie from the book Baking With Julia by Dorie Greenspan. You can pick up a copy on Amazon or wherever you go to buy books. Since this is not my own creation I will not be posting the recipe. But I encourage you to go buy the book. It has a ton of great baking recipes.

As usual I had my little chefs helping out. They love to cook, which makes me smile. It’s a great learning activity plus it gets them to try foods they might not normally want to try. I firmly believe if a child grows and/or cooks it they will try and love all different kinds of food.

We started by making the crust or Pasta Frolla. Dough is always a fun process.

The crust recipe was very simple and turned out great.

Next we mixed the filling, added it to the crust and created a quick lattice top.

The pie turned out great! We all loved the mildly sweet flavor and creamy ricotta texture. We will definitely make this again.
