2 tsp Lemon Juice

1/2 Lemon Zest

3 tbsp Cold Water

8 Steps

Steps 1

In a large bowl, whisk together Salt and Flour. With a pastry cutter or by hand, combine flour and cubes of Cold Butter until butter crumbles are the size of peas.

Steps 2

Add Ricotta Cheese, Lemon Juice, Lemon Zest, and Cold Water to the flour mixture, then mix just until combined (don't overwork the dough, it should hold together loosely).

Steps 3

Shape into a ball, flatten slightly to form a thick disc, wrap with plastic wrap, and set in the fridge for at least 1 hour (or pop in the freezer for 15 minutes).

Steps 4

Meanwhile, gently combine Fresh Blueberries, Cornstarch, Sugar, Lemon Juice, Lemon Zest, and Salt.

Steps 5

On a floured surface, roll dough into a 12 to 14 inch circle. Set on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and spread on Ricotta, leaving 2 inches free around the edges.

Steps 6

Spoon blueberry mixture over the ricotta, gently pressing down to flatten the mixture. Fold free dough over the blueberries, brushing the dough with whisked Large Egg for a shiny golden finish and sprinkling with a bit of Sugar.

Steps 7

Bake at 400 degrees F (204 Celcius) for 30 to 40 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.

Steps 8

Serve and enjoy!
