    This is the recipe I have used for years to make "Italian" cheese cake. It is a wonderful, basic cheese cake which easily lends itself to "variations".

    The addition of herbs or sun-dried tomatoes easily transforms this basic Italian bread into an extra tasty treat. Prep time includes the time to make the starter and 2 rises.

    Lady Fingers are cake-like strips (or "fingers") used as a base in many dessert recipes. They are easy to make and I think they are much better than the "store bought" kind. They are also yummy with a cup of coffee or tea.

    Posted in reply to a message board request. This is the family recipe for homemade ravioli. I have included 4 filling variations along with the ravioli dough recipe. Please note that this dough was made by hand and not with a pasta machine. Feel free to use the fillings with your own favorite pasta dough recipe (hand or machine). Prep time includes 1 hour drying time.

    I was looking through my cookbook for a recipe when I noticed that I had posted a recipe (some time ago) for Cannoli Shells (#40291), but never posted the recipes for the fillings (OOPS!!). Here are the filling recipes that should have been posted along with the shells. These fillings are ricotta based. "Cook time" = chilling time. NOTE: Impastata (aka pastry ricotta) is what is used. The texture of Impastata ricotta is completely smooth (no graininess like regular ricotta) and much drier than regular ricotta. Directions are written for regular ricotta because impastata can be difficult to find.

    There are as many variations of this traditional dish as there are names for it (Pizza Rustica, Carnival Pie, Easter Pie and Ham Pie are just a few.) Some versions include hard boiled eggs in the filling along with the meat and cheeses, this one does not. Here is my family's version which I still make every Easter. The pastry we've always used for the crust is more like a bread dough (yeast risen), however your favorite pie crust recipe may be used as well. **Please note the different pan sizes, pan preparations, baking temperatures and baking times depending on which type of crust you choose to use. The "Prep Time" does not include the 2 hour rising time for the yeast dough crust. Note: The 2nd ingredient for the yeast dough crust should be leaf lard (or butter). Recipezaar will not accept the correction and insists on listing it as "leaves lard".

    Posted in reply to a message board request. In our family, Panettone for breakfast is a holiday tradition on Christmas and Easter. Here is the recipe my family has used for years. It is a time consuming bread/cake to make and is best started a day ahead of baking or very early on the same day. There are 4 rises in this recipe for a total rising time of 13 hours (depending on how warm your kitchen is). The baking time is 65 minutes. The prep time listed is approximate, and is for the mixing/kneading between the rises.

    Posted by request. This is my family's recipe for Pandoro, this bread/cake is similar to "Panettone" but does not contain the candied fruit peels and citron. It is a time consuming recipe, as there are 4 rises for a total rising time of 5 to 6 hours, and 3 "rests" for the dough for a total "resting time" of 1 hour; so its best to start it early in the day. The prep time listed is for the mixing/kneading, and does not include the rising and resting time. A special form/pan is needed for this recipe, please see note. Jan.5, 2011 - Steps 13 and 14 have been corrected.

    My grandmother used to make Easter Egg breads, but she used to make small individual braided "baskets" with an egg nestled in the center under the handle. This recipe is very similar to hers, but makes one large loaf instead. This recipe is from the April 1983 issue of Good Housekeeping magazine. Prep time includes 3 hours rising time.

    This recipe was posted in answer to a message board request. The 10 minute prep time does not include the thawing time for the spinach.

    Antipasto is a traditional appetizer, which can also be served as a light meal. In our family its always served on holidays, but I frequently make it for a light weekend supper or when the guys are looking for a snack when watching a game. Please adjust the amounts and ingredients to your preferences and the number of people you are serving.

    This is a basic recipe for Italian pastry cream which is used as a filling for many cakes and pastries. The chocolate pastry cream is made from this same base, with the addition of the chocolate. Depending on the recipe you are going to use the pastry cream for, you may prefer to omit the lemon rind. Here are the recipes for the basic and chocolate variety. Prep/Cook times do not include chilling time.

    Pan di Spagna (sponge cake) is used as a base for many Italian desserts and cakes. It is a somewhat dry cake, which is usually sprinkled/brushed with a rum or liqueur flavored syrup before the addition of a cream filling. Three 8 or 9inch round or square cake pans may be used instead of the sizes specified.

    Italian Rum Cake is a delicious 3 or 4 layer cake, which is a tradition for birthdays/special occasions in many Italian families. There are 3 basic parts to the cake; sponge cake layers, pasticciera cream (filling) and (stabilized) whipped cream. Below are the recipes for all three parts. If you make it with 3 layers, omit the whipped cream layer. The sponge cake and pasticciera creams may be made a day ahead. The whipped cream should be whipped just before assembling the cake. Prep/Cook times do not include the 3-4 hour chilling time for the pasticciera cream. PLEASE NOTE: This is an egg leavened cake! The egg yolks and whites MUST be beaten to the correct volume and consistency or the recipe will not work. Also, the other ingredients must be folded in (beaten WHITES folded INTO the YOLK/sugar mixture NOT the other way around) in the order given in the directions or the cake will not turn out. The finished layers will be thin depending on the size of your pan. The smaller the pan, the thicker the layers and the longer the baking time needed. If you are expecting this cake to turn out like a "Génoise or American sponge cake," you will be disappointed as this is not a Génoise sponge recipe.

    This has been our family's traditional Easter dessert since long before I came into being. My grandmother (Maria) made it every year until she turned 78 and then declared "it was too much work." So that was the year (1970), I took over this traditional "labor of love." I still make it every Easter, exactly the same way she did. Here is her recipe. The Prep Time includes all the cooking, the 24 hour soaking time for the "dry" wheat, and chilling of the dough. The Cook Time is the actual baking time for the pies. Requires Two 9 x 2 inch round cake pans (I prefer Pyrex, because you can see how brown the bottom of the crust is).

    This recipe is very close to a true Italian gelato. Gelato is more dense than American ice cream because the churning and freezing process differs from the one used for ice cream. Most electric ice cream machines will produce a very good gelato. This recipe requires about 1 to 2 hours refrigeration time to chill the cooked base before processing in your machine. Cook time = the cooking time for the custard base. The freezing/processing time for your ice cream machine is not included in the Prep/Cook times below.

    This is a traditional Italian pastry made on March 19 in celebration of the feast of St. Joseph. The traditional filling for these cream puffs is sweetened ricotta, however a vanilla or almond flavored pasticciera (pastry) cream may be used instead. This recipe should make at least 16-20 sfingi.....depending on how small or large you make the circles, you may end up with more or less shells. Note: If you can't find Impastata ricotta (aka pastry or cannoli ricotta), regular ricotta will work well if you drain it well (preferably overnight), and then beat it (or use food processor or blender) until very creamy.

    Posted in reply to a request. Prep time includes the 2 hour marinating time. Note: The word "sauce" in this recipe refers to a very thick basting sauce/paste, and not a liquid "gravy" type sauce.
