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!

Such a lovely, creamy pie! Light and not too sweet, no one will ever know there's rice in it unless you tell them. The Test Kitchen
