Ingredients

16 ounces ricotta cheese, about 1-3/4 cups (I use part-skim)
1 scant cup sugar
3 tablespoons all purpose flour
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
Dash of salt
3 eggs, separated
1 12-ounce can evaporated milk
1-1/2 cups milk
2 9-inch deep dish unbaked pastry crusts or prebaked graham cracker crusts


Place ricotta cheese in strainer and let drain for about 1 hour or until most of liquid has been discarded. Preheat oven to 425° F. Combine all ingredients except egg whites; mix well. Beat egg whites until firm. Fold into batter until smooth. Pour into pie crusts. Bake for 15 minutes then reduce oven to 350° and bake for an additional 35-40 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on racks. Refrigerate. Flavor improves if served a day after baking.
