Mom's Ricotta Custard

Submitted by: ELENASAN

Introduction

My mom used to make pies of this custard for all the holidays, so it's my ultimate comfort food. Without the pie shell, it's so easy (not to mention completely gluten-free), that I now make it whenever I have extra ricotta and want a dessert.

    Since I also have to eat high protein and low-carb, I changed this recipe a little. I used Farmer's cheese for the ricotta; I used 1 reg egg and 1 eggbeater; and I substituted 1/8 tsp of white Stevia powder for the 1/3 cup sugar. And I baked it in individual custard cups. Made 5 servings. Delicious! - 2/5/11

  • I doubled the recipe and made this for a dinner party last night, served it with raspberries and some homemade pomegranate syrup drizzled over the top, and it was deeeelicious. It also may be the easiest dinner party dessert I've ever made. Thanks for sharing! - 11/21/11

  • Can you use Splenda Measure instead of the sugar? That would even make it less calories. Not sure if it would bake ok still though. - 6/29/10

    I only ever baked once with Splenda and it didn't come out well. Never tried this recipe, though.
