This recipe makes 3-4 pies. I make this amount because of the work involved and all my family members who want some. I guess this pie could be considered labor intensive, but the results are well worth it.

How To Make italian grain (farro) pie
Soak grain in cold water overnight (approx. 24 hours)
Drain grain and boil in fresh water until grain is the consistency of half cooked rice.
Mix ricotta, eggs, sugar, vanilla extract, chocolate morsels and grain in a bowl. HINT: (grain should taste sweet before baking).
Fill pie shells very full. Optional: you can use another pie shell to make a criss-cross pattern on the top of pie.
Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees until firm.
Yields: 2-3 pies
