Italian Fritters

Ingredients

1/4 cup flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 pound fresh Ricotta
2 eggs, beaten
Rind of 1/2 lemon, grated
3 tablespoons brandy

Preparation

1
Stir and mix well together in the order given and let stand 1 hour or more to thicken the batter so it will hold its shape while cooking.
2
Shape batter like walnuts and hold one at a time in the bowl of a long-handled spoon dipped for 10 seconds in boiling hot oil. Fritter the "walnuts" so, and serve at once with powdered sugar.
3
To make fascinating cheese croquettes, mix several contrasting cheeses in this batter.
