    • 1 cup of Castor Sugar.
    • 4 Eggs
    • A Dash of Vanilla Essence. (Not in the photograph – but I always forget something!!!)
    • 2 Cups of Ricotta Cheese

Let’s Play The Game:

  1. Set up you pie base in your pie dish in the usual way for a filo pastry pie. Place a sheet of pastry in the dish and paint it with melted butter and repeat until you have a couple of buttered sheets and there is no trace of the pie dish.
