    CHRISSYG's Note:

    ***PLEASE NOTE I HAVE CORRECTED THE NUMBER OF PIES WHICH THIS RECIPE MAKES, FROM 2 TO 4... THANK YOU TO THE REVIEWERS FOR BRININGT HIS TO MY ATTENTION****Compilation of other recipes I've tried in the never ending quest to duplicate another one of my grandmother's recipes. Many make this with lemon zest/juice or candied citron. We always served this on Easter, it's not too sweet, and not too heavy either> Just right after a big Easter Dinner.

    Serves: 32



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Preheat Oven to 350 degrees and line 2 9" Pie Pans with the crusts, refrigerate and reserve.
    2. 2
      In a large mixing bowl, mix the next 6 ingredients with a large spoon until thoroughly combined (no electric mixers here, it'll ruin the rice).
    3. 3
      Divide filling between 4 prepared pie crusts, sprinkle with cinnamon.
    4. 4
      Bake about 45 minutes or until filling is set in the middle (no longer giggling).
    5. 5
      Allow to cool completely before serving, this actually tastes best when refrigerated overnight.

      Wow, Every Easter I make all my Nanny's favorites, and this is the one pie I could never find the right recipe for. This is it! I will add that it definately makes 4 pies, NOT 2. But like the other review, whose complaining? More for me! I made it last night with my Italian Easter Pie (the one with meats & cheeses) and My PIneapple Ricotta pie for tomorrow...Thank god for the extra fridge. One of the pies is already gone because of all the "little tastes" everyone wanted. Thank you, this will now be part of our tradition! Italian Mom of 2

      This recipe was GREAT! It tastes just like the rice pie I remember eating at my dear Aunts house when I was a kid. I love it! The only thing this recipe needs is a quantity adjustment. It actually makes more than 2 pies. I should have known by the 12 eggs but, I wasn't thinking. After following the recipe I ended up with 4 pies!I love this pie so much that I ate a whole one by myself that day. Rice Pie for breakfast,Lunch and dinner. Yummm!! Thanks for a great recipe.
