    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    I like to add in Marsala into the ricotta mixture, but you can omit if desired. Use your own favorite pie pastry recipe for this. Amaretti biscuits can be purchased in the Italian section of any major supermarket.

      This pie is delicious! I made it with a graham cracker crust as I had some graham crumbs that I wanted to use up. That being the case, this time I omitted the amaretti crumbs. If I should make it with a baked pie crust, I will definitely add them.
