    Marie's Note:

    This is an old Italian recipe that is usually made for the holidays, particularly for Easter, but is good any time of the year. Note that baking time is actually 1 hour and 20 minutes. When I enter that in the cook time, it comes out as a crazy fraction.

      Ok I cheated and used my favorite store bought pie crust. This was very good. I served it cold. But I think this would be good warm out of the oven. I was dying to try it right out of the oven but I was bringing it to someones house the next day wouldn`t look good with a slice missing. I used vanilla Flavored Sugars Flavored Sugar or Splenda and fresh ground cardamom. I garnished it with orange slices. If I had time it would have been candied orange slices. Yummy!
