Italians call these delights Baci Di Ricotta or Kiss of Ricotta, I call them fried Ricotta puffs
what ever you decide to call them just know they are wonderful, and you need them!
These crisp, golden orbs of deliciousness are super quick and easy to make
they make a great last-minute dessert or after school snack….I’m planning on making them part of Christmas morning brunch…YUM!
with a sprinkling of powdered sugar they’re done, no glaze of icing required…………..although, I bet they would be really good with a Krispy Kreme type glaze ……good, another excuse to make them
while you mix up the batter put about 1 inch of oil in a pan and turn on the heat so it can be getting warm
start with one cup ricotta cheese
take two of these……….you know I’m going to take any excuse to show off my hen’s beautiful eggs
add them to the ricotta
mix the cheese and eggs until light and fluffy
add 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder and a pinch of kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
5 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon real vanilla extract……..be brave, just eyeball it
mix everything up
the batter’s all combined and ready to go
now were ready to fry, baby, fry
spoon the batter into the oil
turn once while they’re cooking so they will brown evenly
dust with powdered sugar and repeat after me, “these are empty calories, so they don’t count”
Enjoy, and have a great Saturday!
see ya tomorrow,
