These blueberry filled donuts present the perfect amount of sweetness in any breakfast or dessert. They are great by themselves or with a warm cup of coffee.

Ingredients

  • 15 oz. GalbaniĀ® Ricotta Cheese
  • 28 oz. pizza dough, room temperature
  • 1 small jar of blueberry jam or jelly
  • 1 cup confection sugar
  • 1 quart of vegetable oil

Directions

  • Cut the dough ball into 14 equal size pieces and roll each into a ball.
  • Set aside on a floured sheet tray for 30 minutes so the dough can rise.
  • In a medium-sized pot, add vegetable oil and heat slowly to approximately 350 degrees F.
  • Add dough balls to the oil using a slotted spoon, roll the balls around in the oil until they turn golden brown. Cook time approximately 3-4 minutes each side.
  • Remove from oil and place on a paper towel on a plate.
  • In a separate bowl, mix ricotta and 3 tablespoons of the blueberry jelly together until thoroughly blended.
  • Fill a pastry bag or large Ziploc bag with mixture. If using a plastic bag, cut a tip off of one of the corners to pipe the filling through.
  • Using a paring knife or kitchen scissors, cut an X into each donut going half way in.
  • Fill the donuts with the ricotta mixture, sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve.
