DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare pastry for the crust by mixing all ingredients in food processes until just combined. Chill dough for 1 hour in the refrigerator.
  • Prepare the filling by lightly whisking the yolks and sugar, then sift in flour, mixing carefully to keep lumps from forming. Add milk in a thin stream, stirring gently.
  • Once mixture is smooth, gently heat it, while stirring carefully, until it begins to thicken. Once it reaches a very slow boil, count to 120 while stirring gently and it is done.
  • Transfer mixture into a bowl and let it cool throughly. Mix ricotta into it.
  • Preheat oven to 180°C.
  • Roll out dough and use half of it to line a 10 inch fluted pie dish. Pour mixture into the pan and cover with remaining rolled pastry, sealing edges down firmly.
  • Decorate by whisking egg white and bushing it over the top of the pastry and scatter almonds over it. Bake for approximately 1 hour, let it cool and serve.
