Ricotta Zeppole (4 to 6 servings)

Ingredients

4 large eggs

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

2 cups ricotta (about 1 pound)

½ cup all-purpose flour

¾ cup granulated sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

Canola oil for frying

Confectioners' Sugar

Procedure

1. Beat the eggs, vanilla, and ricotta together in a large mixing bowl. Sift the flour,

½ cup sugar, and baking powder on top, and fold the mixture together until it is a homogenous if not entirely smooth batter.

2. Bring 2 inches of oil to 375 degrees in a Fryolator. Add tablespoon-sized lumps of batter to the oil, working in batches as necessary to avoid crowding the pan. Fry the fritters for about 4 minutes, flipping them once mid-fry to ensure that each side turns a deep golden brown.

3. Remove them to a paper towel-lined sheet pan.

4. In a bowl combine, ¼ cup sugar and 1 tablespoon cinnamon. Roll or toss the hot zeppole in the cinnamon sugar mixture, arrange on a warm platter, dust with Confectioners' Sugar and serve immediately.

    Two years ago, Nicole Pagliaro of Staten Island dropped off her wedding gown to be cleaned and preserved at a local dry cleaner when superstorm Sandy hit. The store was destroyed and Pagliaro assumed so had been her dress.  As her wedding anniversary approached, Pagliaro and her husband drove by another dry cleaner in town and saw the gown in the store's window. “I held on to the ticket because this was my only connection to my wedding dress,” said Pagliaro.
