I can't find my Mom's ricotta pie recipe, so I started looking around online. There are many variations of ricotta pie, and this seems closest to the one my Mom used to make at Christmas. Many of the recipes don't specify, but it's best to get the firmer type of ricotta from an Italian deli, or buy the full fat variety from your usual source, and drain it well before using. There are also other recipes in this article, and they all sound delicious. Ricotta pie is similar to cheesecake, but denser, and somewhat firmer.
