  • 1 large container of Ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 3 eggs plus 2 egg whites
  • 1 tsp. lemon extract or anise extract


  • 1 and 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 egg yolks


  • Mix and roll out crust dough to fit a square baking dish.
  • Mix the filling, and put on top of the crust.
  • Bake at 250 degrees for 2 hours.


  • The first time I tasted this recipe, Theresa had used the anise extract. It was so delicious that I've never bothered to make it with lemon extract instead.
  • As usual, I use Spelt flour.
  • I keep Philipio Berio Extra light olive oil on hand when a baked treat recipe calls for oil. Healthy alternatives are what I always strive to use when I cook, or bake.
