    cookiedog's Note:

    I made this for Easter since my family had an Italian dinner. It has a phyllo pastry crust with a filling similar to a rice pudding studded with pine nuts and orange zest. It is best served on the day it is prepared. Recipe is courtesy of Giada Laurentis.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Blend 3/4 cup of powdered sugar, eggs, vanilla, orange zest and ricotta in a food processor until smooth. Stir in the rice and pine nuts. Set the ricotta mixture aside.
    2. 2
      Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
    3. 3
      Lightly butter a 9-inch glass pie dish. Lay 1 phyllo sheet over the bottom and up the sides of the dish, allowing the phyllo to hang over the sides. Brush the phyllo with the melted butter. Top with a second sheet of phyllo dough, laying it in the opposite direction as the first phyllo sheet. Continue layering the remaining sheets of phyllo sheets, alternating after each layer and buttering each sheet.
    4. 4
      Spoon the ricotta mixture into the dish. Fold the overhanging phyllo dough over the top of the filling to enclose it completely.
    5. 5
      Brush completely with melted butter.
    6. 6
      Bake the pie until the phyllo is golden brown and the filling is set, about 35 minutes.
    7. 7
      Transfer the pan to a rack and cool completely.
    8. 8
      Sift powdered sugar over the pie and serve.

      Made this for (what else?) Easter, and it was a hit. I added more rice, almost doubling it to a full cup and also more than a 1/3 cup of pine nuts. It still set perfectly and was both beautiful and delicious.

      I've made this three times now and it is heavenly. Sort of like a rice pudding in phyllo, but not enough rice to call it that. I took it to work and everyone thought it rather odd but delicious. It is very easy to make. Don't leave the orange zest out, it is essential for the depth of flavor.
