1) Combine lemon zest, egg yolks, flour, sugar and ricotta cheese; blend together with a mixer, or in a Vitamix style blender.

2) Beat egg whites into a meringue style mixture, and fold them into the combined ingredients above.

3) The mixture will become less dense, and more of a liquid texture. At that point pour into both pie pans, shaved dark chocolate over top, place a sprinkle of crushed and chopped macadamia nuts on top of the chocolate.

4) Cook at 350 degrees for approximately 35 minutes until there is a golden light ring from the crust to the first quarter of the pie. Remove and let cool on racks then chill.
