Ingredients

  • 6 sheets of fresh phyllo
  • 3 eggs
  • 15 ounces whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 1.5 ounces cannabutter (softened)
  • 1.5 ounces unsalted butter (softened)
  • ¾ cup icing sugar
  • ½ cup short-grain rice (cooked)
  • 1/3 cup roasted pine nuts
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

Tools

  • Blender
  • Wooden spoon
  • Glass pie dish
  • Sauce brush

Instructions

  1. Add the ¾ cup of icing sugar to a blender along with the eggs, ricotta, orange zest, and vanilla, and pulse the mixture on high until smooth.

  2. Preheat the oven to 375°F, and lightly grease a glass pie dish taking care to cover all of the sides.

  3. Carefully lay one of the phyllo sheets down to cover the bottom and sides of the pie dish. The edges should hang evenly around all sides.

  4. Use a sauce brush to cover the layer of phyllo with cannabutter.

  5. Place the second layer of phyllo on top of the first.

  6. Use a sauce brush to apply a thin layer of unsalted butter.

  7. Repeat steps 3 through 6 until all of the phyllo layers are in place.

  8. Spoon the ricotta cheese mixture into the pastry dish, spreading it evenly around to ensure a consistent thickness.

  9. Grab the hanging edges of the phyllo sheets and carefully fold in the corners one at a time until all have been shifted to cover the exposed top of the easter pie.

  10. Use a sauce brush to apply the remaining butter(s) to the top of the pie and then put it in the oven to bake for 35-45 minutes, or until the crust is a nice golden brown colour.

  11. Remove the pie from the oven and leave it on a cooling rack to set.

Serving

Easter pie will take some time to set, so it’s best if left for at least 20 minutes before diving in for a hearty helping of this delicious treat.
