Ingredients

  • 1 ¾ cups part-skim ricotta cheese (15 ounces)
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together 1 ¾ cups (15 ounces) part-skim ricotta cheese, 1/3 cup granulated sugar, 2 large eggs, and 2 teaspoons grated orange zest (1 orange). Whisk in 2/3 cup all-purpose flour until just combined.
