  1. In a small bowl, combine the wafer crumbs and butter; press onto the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased 9-in. pie plate. Bake at 375° for 6-8 minutes or until the crust is lightly browned; cool on a wire rack. Spread preserves over crust. In a large bowl, beat the ricotta, sugar and vanilla until smooth.
