  1. Stir together 1 3/4 cups flour and 2 tablespoons sugar in a large bowl. Work in butter until the mixture becomes crumbly. Stir in water a tablespoon at a time, just until the dough comes together and is no longer dry. Form into a ball, and wrap with plastic; refrigerate 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Roll out the dough on a floured surface and line a 10-inch pie pan. Trim excess from the edges of the pan. Pierce the bottom of the dough several times with a fork, then set aside.
  4. Beat eggs in a large bowl until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in 1/4 cup sugar 1 tablespoon flour, and half of the cinnamon; continue beating until firm peaks form. Beat in honey, then fold in ricotta cheese until evenly combined. Pour the filling into the prepared pie shell and smooth the top of the pie with a moistened knife.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until the center is set and the top is dark golden brown, 50 to 60 minutes. Once finished, remove from oven, and sprinkle with remaining cinnamon.

We didn't care for the texture of the filling and the crust turned out very tough. May have made some mistakes along the way but still would not make again.

This was very easy and delicious. I suspect the ingredients should have called for egg whites instead of eggs, as only egg whites would form the peaks as described, but since the previous revie...

Delicious! I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out great. Used mizithra.

This is a really nice pie, I did mine with a top. It is nothing fancy. It is great for a laid back afternoon alone or with friends. Really quite nice and homely feeling. I thought it was best wh...

I never did get the soft or firm peaks. Not sure what went wrong, but it turned out great.

This pie was extremely good, though I would recommended that you add a bit more honey, sugar, and flour.

Good taste but beating the eggs till they had soft peaks may have been too much as the end result had air pockets in the filling which made the texture grainy. Also 50 min was plenty and probabl...

I have to be very frank and admit that I was reluctant to try to make this pie because it just looks very unappetizing to me. But I'm so glad I went for it, because this pie is delicious. This...
