"This is a creamy pie, not a dense cheesecake. For crust-challenged individuals (like myself), this is for you. The crust is cookie-like. Whenever I am invited to visit friends and ask if I can bring something, they always request this pie."

1 1/2 teaspoons
2 (16 ounce) containers
ground cinnamon, for garnish
white sugar, for sprinkling
...this was just like my Italian grandmother's recipe...now we change it a bit with 8 oz ricotta and 8 oz of mascarpone...and then put about 1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips in the pie too. We are from Bari, Italy; there for the differing cheeses.
Lovely pie. I added half of the ricotta as specified as ididnt have enough in the fridge but it came out perfect.
I made this as written no changes. It was a hit at my house! The next time I make it I will just cut out a shape in the remaining dough and set it in the center. Without a picture I didn't know where to put the 3 circles of dough and as you can see from the pic I posted,they look kind of silly!
