Description

Pastiera Napoletana is a classic Easter pie that has the rather unexpected presence of cooked grains in the rich filling that also includes eggs, ricotta cheese, candied fruit, and orange flower water. In this version, rice flour is used to make the crust, made tender with the addition of eggs and scented with grated lemon zest. Don’t worry if the filling is loose and liquidy before spreading it in the pie shell; it will set up nicely during baking.
