Ingredients:

1 c ricotta cheese

2 eggs

1/2 c flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/8 tsp salt

1/2 tsp nutmeg

2-3 Tbsp sugar

1 Tbsp orange zest

1 tsp orange extract

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

safflower oil

2 Tbsp powdered sugar

Directions:

1. In a medium bowl combine ricotta and eggs; mix until smooth.

2. Add flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, sugar, orange zest, orange extract and vanilla; combine until smooth.

3. Fill a large, shallow skillet with approximately 3/4 inch of safflower oil. Place over medium-high heat. (You will know when the oil is hot enough when a bit of batter sizzles when dropped in.) Drop small rounded teaspoons of batter into the hot oil, 8 to 10 at a time. The batter will puff and undersides will turn golden brown, after about 1 to 2 minutes, flip the “kisses” over and cook for 1 to 2 more minutes until golden brown.

4. Place cooked “kisses” on a tray lined with paper towels. Continue making them until all the batter is gone.

5. Place these delicate little puffs on a serving plate and sprinkle liberally with powdered sugar. Serve immediately.
