Three Layer Italian Cheese Pie

Who says pies can’t have cheese?

Our Italian Cheese Pie gets its rich and creamy texture from ricotta cheese combined with delicious lemon flavors.



  • 1/2 (15-ounce) package refrigerated pie crust
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 (15-ounce) container ricotta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons grated lemon peel
  • 1 (10-ounce) jar lemon curd
  • Whipped cream for garnish



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Unroll pie crust and place in a 9-inch pie plate.
  2. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat the eggs, sugar, vanilla, ricotta cheese, and lemon peel until well blended. Pour into  pie crust.
  3. Bake 60 to 65 minutes, or until filling is set and edges are golden. Let cool.
  4. Evenly spread lemon curd on top of pie. 
  5. Chill 4 hours, or until ready to serve. Dollop with whipped cream.


  • For an extra special touch, garnish with fresh raspberries or your favorite fruit.
  • Don’t worry if the center of the pie falls slightly after you take it out of the oven…mine usually does, and it still tastes great!
