Directions

  1. In a large bowl; mix eggs, white sugar, and ricotta cheese until smooth and creamy. Stir in the vanilla and flour. If the batter is dry mix in a little of the milk.
  2. In a frying pan over medium high heat, heat vegetable oil until hot. Drop teaspoonfuls of batter into the hot oil and fry until golden. Turn to cook cookies evenly. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain cookies on paper towels. Sprinkle with confectioner's sugar if desired.

Can you scream FUNNEL CAKE! AWESOME! Put in a ziplock, snipped corner and made it like a funnel cake in peanut oil. AWESOME RECIPE!

These were great! Just like Nonna used to make. very moist. If you don't have cake flour use: 1 c of all purpose flour minus 2 T, then add 2 T of cornstarch. Blend well.It works for most recipes...

This taste just like my Grandma used to make. It is so easy and just one bowl to clean, if your a true Sicilian or would like to be one, try these. Yummo! Kid friendly finger food.
