      This dessert is fabulous! It was quite simple to make and if you like the taste of ricotta, you'll love this pie. The only change I made was that I cooked it for 1 1/2 hrs. for the filling to be cooked. I have made this pie three times already, and everyone loves it. Oh yes, I also covered the edges of the pastry with foil while baking, due to the length of time in the oven.

      This Tart is superb!!! I added a lot more grated lemon zest than what your recipe asks for though - only because I wanted it to taste really lemony! The texture is perfect and I've been asked by my husband to make another one! It's a great idea to have half the quanity of pastry in the freezer so making another one is so straight forward! 10/10 Bergy!! It sure is a real winner! Cheers, Karin...
