  • In mixing bowl combine Ricotta, cream cheese, 1/4 cup sugar and 1 egg and rum if you want. mix until smooth.
  • Pour into pie shell.
  • Spread pineapple mixture evenly on top. Slowly add over the Ricotta mixture and try to cover evenly.
  • Cut 2nd pie crust into 1" strips and arrange over the top in a lattice fashion.
  • Mix remaining egg and milk in small bowl.
