Apple Ricotta Fritters

AuthorJulie

2 apples, coarsely grated (don’t bother peeling them)
1/2 cup fresh ricotta cheese
2 large eggs
1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
pinch salt
canola, peanut or other mild vegetable oil, for cooking
icing sugar, for dusting

1

In a large bowl, combine the apple, ricotta, eggs and cinnamon, stirring until well blended. Add the flour and salt and stir just until combined.

Line a large plate, skillet or baking sheet with paper towels. In a shallow pot set over medium-high heat, heat an inch or so of oil until it’s hot but not smoking - a scrap of bread should sizzle when dipped in. Drop small spoonfuls of the fritter mixture into the oil without crowding the pan - I use a small spoon and scoop it up along one edge, making a longish fritter.

Cook for a few minutes, turning as they turn golden on the bottom, until they’re deep golden all over. Transfer to the paper towels with tongs or a slotted spoon. Let drain while you cook the rest, and douse them in icing sugar while they’re still warm.
