      I have also long been a fan of fritters, but had never made any till today. These little beauties (as Ev called them) are just so easy to fix & dynomite yummy to eat! It is a good thing I made a full recipe & had a bunch of them because DH & I were eating them plain while I was trying to dust them & take the photo. Then we ate more after that & dipped them in raspberry preserves. I can hardly wait to serve them to guests & I am sure DH will want them often, so thx for sharing this great recipe!

      I have long been a fan of ricotta fritters and this recipe provided many little beauties. We enjoyed these during the World Cup Final and dipped them into home-made sour cherry preserves.
