9 9-inch double pie crusts
45 heads garlic
7 15-oz cartons ricotta cheese

4 C raisins
1 Tbsp saffron (or 2 Tbsp turmeric)
1 1/2 Tbsp salt
1 Tbsp cloves

Break the garlic heads into cloves and peel them. When you're almost done, bring a pot of water to a boil. Add the garlic cloves to the boiling water, lower the heat to medium and cook for 15 minutes. Drain the garlic thoroughly and puree it.

Add the filling to the pie and cover it. Bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour.
