3/4 c. sugar
1/2 lb. ricotta cheese
3 egg yolks, lightly beaten
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 c. citron fruit, candied fruit
Grated orange rind


3 1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. shortening

Boil rice and 1 cup water for 10 minutes; drain, then add hot milk. Cook 15 minutes and cool. Stir in 3/4 cup sugar, ricotta cheese, egg yolks, cinnamon, citron fruit and orange rind; mix together.

Crust: Cut shortening into flour; add sugar, 1/4 cup water to form stiff dough. Roll dough (thinly) and line one 9 inch pie pan (you will have enough dough for 2). Pour rice mixture into dough. Roll out remaining dough (thick), cut into 1 inch strips and place on top of pie. Brown at 450 degrees, then reduce heat to 350 degrees for 40 minutes to cook.
