  1. Grease two 9-inch pie plates.
  2. Pulse flour, baking powder, 1/2 cup sugar, and salt in a food processor several times until combined.
  3. Place butter into the flour mixture and pulse just until butter resembles coarse crumbs. Mix in 1 egg and vanilla extract; process until dough holds together, about 30 seconds.
  4. Place dough on a well-floured work surface, divide in half, and roll each piece into a 9-inch round crust.
  5. Fit crusts into the prepared pie plates and freeze for 1 hour.
  6. Bring water to a boil in a saucepan; stir in rice and return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook until rice has absorbed the water, about 20 minutes.
  7. Stir milk into the rice and bring to a simmer; cook until thickened, stirring often, about 10 more minutes. Set rice mixture aside to cool.
  8. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  9. Beat ricotta cheese, 1 cup sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest, and 6 eggs together in a bowl until smooth. Stir in cooked rice mixture and crushed pineapple until thoroughly combined.
  10. Divide the filling between the 2 cold pie crusts.
  11. Bake in the preheated oven until the filling is set and the tops are golden brown, about 90 minutes. Cool on racks.

This was great. Followed recipe as written and served it with whipped topping and coconut.

I used this crust recipe and Fred Pelligrini's rice pie filling recipe and the pies were perfect! Good crust for any pie.

I made these pies for Easter. They were delicious, and I'll definitely be making them every year. I made a few changes. I used a boxed Pillsbury Crust Mix. I added about a teaspoon of vanilla...


This was delicious. I halved the recipe and made one pie. I added more liquid to the crust (milk) to make it easier to work with. I added some chopped cherries also. I'll definitely make this ...
