These little fried cheese-filled fritters are a perfect snack or appetizer. I bet they would also be great with a sweetened filling as a dessert!
A dough is made from flour, olive oil, salt and warm water. It is kneaded, and left to rest for 2 hours.
The filling contains fontina, ricotta, parmigiano, salt and pepper. Roll out the dough, cut it into rectangles, add filling, and fold over like ravioli, using an egg white to seal the edges.
The fritters can rest on a clean dishtowel until you are ready to fry them in vegetable oil until golden. This is a delicious savory treat!
