Hope you find your mother. :-)

Lot's of different recipe for Easter pie. Here's one...

Crust

2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 sticks unsalted butter, cut in cubes
2 eggs
Filling

6 eggs
salt and pepper to taste
8 ounces farmer cheese, fresh soft cheese or ricotta cheese click for note
2 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
3 ounces shredded ham
3 ounces shredded salami
3 ounces shredded prosciutto
METHOD

Crust: Mix flour and salt and place in bowl of a food processor. Add butter
cubes, one at a time to dough. After each cube pulse food processor just
enough to work in butter. Do not overwork or dough will toughen. Dough
should resemble coarse meal.

Add eggs. Pulse dough until it comes together in a ball. Cut dough in half
so that one half is slightly bigger than the other. The smaller half will
be the top crust. Wrap each in plastic wrap and rest dough for an hour in
fridge. (If you don't have a food processor, work in butter with a dough
cutter or a fork and use your hands to integrate eggs.)

When dough is almost done resting, preheat oven to 350F. Make filling:
Beat eggs with salt and pepper. Blend cheese into eggs. Shred or slice
meat, or put in food processor for a finer textured pie and add to
egg/cheese mixture.

Roll out larger piece of dough on a floured board until it will fill a 9-
inch pie shell. Add filling. Roll out smaller piece of dough until it will
cover top. Crimp around edges to seal it.

If you'd like, you can brush the top with an egg wash, (beaten eggs). This
will give it a sheen when it bakes. Finally, poke holes or slits in the top
crust to allow the steam to vent.

Cook in preheated 350F oven or 45 minutes.

I've never heard of an Easter pie, but due to a recent thread, I thought
it would be along the lines of a rabbit pot pie.
