Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 180°C/360°F top/bottom heat (160°C/320°F convection oven).
  • Cut the vanilla bean open lengthwise with a sharp knife. Then carefully scrape out the pulp of the vanilla bean with the tip of the knife.
  • Crack the eggs and put them in a mixing bowl with the sugar and beat until foamy.
  • Then add the ricotta, curd, cornstarch, vanilla bean pulp (or vanilla sugar) and amaretto and mix thoroughly.
  • Grease the glasses with a little softened butter. Then fill with ⅔ of the mixture and add flaked almonds if desired. Then place in the oven (middle shelf) for baking for about 30 minutes.
  • Once they have taken on a nice golden brown color, remove and let cool briefly. Finally, sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve lukewarm.
    Buon appetito!
