This is an Italian take on cheesecake, only so much richer. It was always served by my grandma at Christmas, and it's the perfect dessert to end a holiday meal!
I halfed this recipe and served it at a Christmas party with friends. The ricotta made a very nice texture, with good flavor, but we did not care too much for the candied cherries. I think it would be just fine without them. - 24 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made this for easter and instead of using cherries I used a can of crushed pineapple~What a fabulous pie!!! My husband has requested it for his birthday instead of cake!!! Top it with some whipped cream and strawberries...I think I'll do that next!! - 02 Apr 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This pie was nice for something different to make for the holidays. I followed the directions as they were except I omitted the candied cherries. It came out really well, my family really liked it. The lemon flavor was really a nice touch because without it the pie wouldn't have had much flavor. - 20 May 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
