Easter Rice Pie

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!

This pie is a wonderful tradition to start making for Easter. The decadent custard is held together with the arborio rice. Not too sweet, no one will ever know there's rice in it unless you tell them. This pie is rich, fluffy, and very creamy. A pinch of cinnamon is the perfect touch and adds just a bit of flavor. A wonderful holiday dessert!

Note: While arborio rice is recommended if you can't find that a white long grain can be substituted. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
