Add butter and shortening

Cut 4 tablespoons of cold butter and 2 tablespoons of shortening into the dry ingredients until small, pea-size crumbs form.

Add water

Add 5 tablespoons of water one at a time and mix until combined and the dough just starts to come together. Add more water if needed and do not over mix. It is OK if you still see pieces of butter and shortening in the batter.

Once chilled, remove and roll the dough into a rough 16x10-inch oval and then transfer to a baking sheet. Spread an even layer of ricotta cheese and top with cherries and all their juices, leaving a 2-3-inch border around the edges. Gather the edges and fold them up, brush the crust with some beaten egg and sprinkle 1 tablespoon raw sugar.
