Mix the eggs and ricotta together until they become a smooth mixture.
Add the rest of the ingredients and mix everything well.
In a skillet, heat about an inch (2-3 cm) of oil. Once it is warm enough, drop the dough in using a teaspoon.

Baci di ricotta is an Italian pastry, and it means ricotta kisses.
This is the first time I made them, and they were wonderful! Very easy and fast to make as compared to donuts or usual munchkins.
I enjoyed these very much and found them to be unlike anything fried I’ve made before. They were fluffy, light, and didn’t soak up much oil which allowed for the real flavor to come through.
I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts on them. Enjoy 🙂
