Although this dessert is often referred to as Italian Easter Pie there is no reason you have to be Italian or even wait until Easter to enjoy a slice. Flavored with citrus and cinnamon, the pie makes a refreshing anytime treat.
While there are many versions of this recipe, some made with Arborio rice and some made with wheat berries or tiny pasta, my family has always used long grain rice. I was recently given some RiceSelect brand Texmati Long Grain American Basmati to try and immediately thought of this recipe. This widely recognized brand of aromatic rice is delicious on its own and when added to the pie it imparted an exotic nutty flavor and a wonderful texture.
