Cannoli French Toast

1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar plus more for dusting
1 cup ricotta cheese

2 eggs
1/2 cup milk

12 slices sandwich bread, crusts removed
2 Tablespoons olive oil

In a small bowl, sift confectioners’ sugar then stir in ricotta cheese.

In a larger bowl, beat together 2 eggs and 1/2 cup milk.

Trim the crusts off 12 slices of sandwich bread and using a rolling pin, roll out the bread to flatten.

Add 1 Tablespoon of the sweetened ricotta cheese to each slice, fold over and pinch the edges together.

In a large skillet, heat 2 Tablespoons olive oil over medium heat.

Dip the stuffed bread slices in the egg mixture and transfer to the skillet.

Cook for about 2 minutes each side.

Eat with or without topping. We had ours with cherry topping and it was perfect!

1/4 cup melted margarine
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 1/2 – 4 cups flour

Oil for frying
2 cups confectioners sugar

Warm the milk in a saucepan until it bubbles. Remove from heat and let it cool until warm
In a large bowl, mix together 1 teaspoon sugar and 3 cups of flour.
Stir in milk until smooth
