Preheat your oven to 350ºF.
Make the crust
In your food processor, pulse the flour, sugar, salt and cinnamon. Add the cold butter and pulse a few times until the crust resembles pea-sized clumps. Then add the egg and milk and pulse the dough turns into a large ball.
If you do not own a food processor, you can mix this by hand: In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, salt and cinnamon. Using a fork or a pastry cutter, cut in the cold butter until you achieve pea-sized clumps. Using your hands, mix in egg and milk and knead the crust into a ball.
Using a rolling pan or a cylinder-like surface (like a wine bottle or coffee can), roll the dough into a circle so that it is slighter larger than a deep dish pie or tart pan. You may want to place the dough in between two sheets of parchment paper, waxed paper or plastic wrap to prevent it from sticking to your working surface.
Grease your deep dish pie or tart pan with butter or cooking spray. Place the rolled out dough onto the pan and gently push the dough into the sides. Remove any excess dough. Chill the pie/tart pan in the refrigerator.
Make the filling
In the bowl of a stand mixer using the paddle attachment (or in a large bowl if using a handheld mixer), mix together the ricotta, egg, sugar, and Amaretto on medium speed until just combined. Stop the mixer and fold in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon or rubber spatula.
Remove the cooled pie dough/pan from the refrigerator and pour the filling on top of the crust. Use a spatula to smooth out the top. If desired, you can sprinkle on additional chocolate chips or chunks.
Bake the pie in your preheated oven for about 25-35 minutes or until the crust is golden in color and the filling has slightly poofed up. Remove the pie from the oven and allow to cool completely.
Pie can be served cold or at room temp. If desired, you can dust the top with powdered sugar or drizzle the top with melted chocolate. The pie should be stored either at room temperature or in the refrigerator in an airtight container and will keep for about 3 days.Source: Tasty Kitchen
