Honey-Ricotta Lazy Day Pie

Rustic citrus tart with grapefruit slices, orange slices and mint on a blue surface, with tulips and a plate nearby.
Technically, this a “galette..." but this Honey-Ricotta Lazy Day pie tastes just like a custard pie. This pretty pastry is perfect for slow Saturdays and mellow Sundays. Topped off with beautiful brightly colored spring citrus, it’s also delicious with berries. And don’t forget a drizzle (or four!) of honey!

Heat oven to 375ºF. In a large bowl, stir together cream cheese, ricotta, ½ cup honey and egg.

Unroll pie dough on a pizza stone, fill the center with the ricotta mixture, leaving the outer 2 inches untouched by filling. Gently fold and pinch outer crust up around the ricotta mixture. Brush outer crust with honey, sprinkle with sparkling sugar.

Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until crust is golden and ricotta filling is set in center. Remove and cool. Top with sliced citrus, drizzle with honey. Garnish with mint.

Serve and enjoy.
