DIRECTIONS

  • In a small bowl, combine ricotta cheese, egg, milk and cinnamon.
  • Mix well with a fork until well combined and not very lumpy.
  • (Do not mix until all lumps disappear).
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal.
  • Stir in cheese mixture lightly, then combine quickly.
  • Be careful not to overmix, knead no more than 10 times.
