      Title: Torta della nonna
      Yield: 6 Servings

      2 c  Flour
      1    Egg
      2    Yolks
    1/2 c  Sugar
      3 tb Sweet butter and
      3 tb Olive oil melted together
    1/2 ts Vanilla extract

      2 c  Fresh ricotta (sheep's milk
           Is best)
    1/2 c  Pine nuts
    1/2 c  Sugar
      1    Lemons; Juice and zest of
      3    Eggs
  Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  To make the pastry, make a well of the flour, place egg, yolks, sugar,
  butter and olive oil mixture in center and proceed as you would with
  fresh pasta, i.e. bring flour in bit by bit until liquid in well is
  thick enough to bring together with hands. Knead until dough is
  smooth and then allow to rest 10 minutes. Meanwhile, make the filling
  by mixing together the ricotta, pine nuts, sugar, lemon zest, juice
  and eggs in a bowl until creamy. To assemble, roll out the pastry to
  form two 12 inch circles. Place one circle down to line the bottom
  and sides of the pan. Spread the ricotta mixture evenly over this
  layer. Place the remaining circle of dough over the top and pinch
  together the edges. Place in oven and bake for 35 to 40 minutes.
  Remove and serve warm or at room temperature with vin santo from
