Original recipe yields 18 balls

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the ricotta cheese, cream cheese, flour, salt, vanilla, lemon zest and eggs. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg whites and sugar. Pour into the cheese mixture, and mix until well blended. Roll into balls about the size of a golf ball, and place in a glass baking dish.
  3. Bake for 45 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown on top.

There is no way to form a ball with a batter that runs off the spoon. Fortunately I got already suspicious before I wasted four eggs for the egg white mix and used the batter I had for a cheese cake recipe - which turned out great but was not what I wanted :-( Since I don't know what Italian Cheese Balls are (and none of my native Italian guests could tell me either) I wasn't sure if I just could add more flour?!

I have it in the oven right now, but I followed the recipe exactly and there is no way to make it into balls because it comes out like a cake batter, so I just put it in a glass pan and I guess I will cut it into pieces. Maybe you should check the ingredients better, it should be drier.
