Place dry ingredients in bowl add cold butter mix and crumb. Add vanilla, egg and lemon rind. Remove and knead until dough comes together. Place baking paper in a pie dish and lay dough on top.

  • ½ cup milk
  • 60 g sugar
  • 3 eggs separated

Beat egg whites till stiff.
Beat yolks and sugar together till pale in colour.
Add Ricotta cheese to beaten yolks and milk.
Fold in egg whites.
Fill your pie dough with the Ricotta and bake for 30-35 Mins at 160/170ºC.
Hopefully no loadshedding 🙂
