Rice pie(along with Ricotta pie) is our family's traditional Easter dessert. Like many Italian desserts, it is simple and not very sweet. The rice settles to the bottom leaving a custard-like layer on top. A very satisfying dessert. A dollop of sweetened whip cream is a perfect topper. Enjoy!

To Jessica S - Just read your comment. I don't care for crust either unless it's homemade and VERY flaky. I will try this pie without the crust. Thank you :-)

For myself I made this last night without a crust. (I've never been a fan of pie dough & try not to eat wheat these days.) I buttered a Temp-tations 1.5qt square baking dish, poured in the filling (evenly spreading out rice) and baked it in a water bath at 350° for about an hour. The center was still slightly jiggly when removing from oven. Cooled then let sit in refrigerator overnight. Today it is sooo good! Set perfectly. I don't miss the crust at all. Also, remember this pie is always better the next day! :)
