INGREDIENTS for 0 people
  • 2 lb ricotta cheese
  • 3 ½ oz sugar
  • 400 all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 oz lard
  • 1 pinch saffron
  • orange zest , grated
Preparation

Prepare the pastry with 2.5 cups of flour, 2 egg whites, a spoonful of clarified pork fat and a pinch of salt. Put the Ricotta in a bowl with the sugar, yolks, saffron and orange peel and mix well with a wooden spoon.

When the dough is ready, roll out into a thin sheet and cut out some disks about 3.2 inches in diameter. In the center of each disk put a dollop of filling and turn up the edges of the disk by pinching it at intervals to produce a round open container filled to the brim.

Bake in a moderate oven (350°F) until the filling becomes amber-colored. Dust with powdered sugar or honey before serving.
