Recipe by LINDASLUSCIOUSPIES
"This is a recipe handed down from my Sicilian Grandmother. Each family has their own way of baking the Easter Pie in the Old Country and with our family and friends it was discussed at length, believe me! This pie is made the week before Easter and offered to guests for at least a week around Easter (it will keep that long). Traditionally, it is left in the pan which it is baked in and is served from the pan. Enjoy!"

uncooked white rice
1 1/3 cups
1 1/2 tablespoons
grated orange zest
orange flower water
This is an excellent recipe. Very similar to the pies my Italian grandmother made.
I found this recipe very difficult to make - Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!! First, I didn't have enough of the dough to make the crust, let alone the lattice for the top. It was also very crumbly and wouldn't stick together until it warmed up a bit first, even after that, it was very hard to work with. Second - the filling became very runny after I added the ricotta cheese and egg whites, and I had almost double of what would fit in the pie. I tried to put some "lattice" dough on top, but it just fell into the filling. Also, where in the heck can you find orange flower water?? I haven't tasted it yet, however it does smell really good.
This was a lovely subtle pie, really nice. I had a few issues with the pastry though, it seemed to be sticky and crumbly at the same time. I don't know whether that's the recipe or the chef, though, because I don't tend to use a method like that for pastry, so I could just be inexperienced. It was, as someone else said, quite a complicated pie to put together, and it took me quite a while, but I think it was worth it, although unless anyone gives me any tips I'll just use my usual pastry for the crust.
This is a Excellent recipe, It came out perfect and very outstanding Delicacy. This deserves 5 STARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The taste was great, however, there was too much rice and it was way too dense and a bit dry. I would liked to be a little bit more of the creamy base so next time I will reduce the amount of rice. I will make this again.
Instead of raisins, I used pineapple slices to garnish it.With cherries in the middle,like what you would put on a ham at Easter.
