How to Prepare:
Beat the egg and add the ricotta, cinnamon and splenda.

Mix into the dry ingredients to make a rough dough (not runny, not cookie dough thick – in between).

Heat 1″ of oil in a non-stick skillet until hot, but not smoking.

Pinch off about 2T of the dough and pat into rounds that are about 1″ thick and the size of a small egg. Gently place into oil and fry on one side until golden brown (about 3 minutes) carefully turn and cook another 4-5 minutes on the other side.

Remove to paper towels to drain briefly. Eat as is or make a mixture of splenda and cinnamon and shake the still warm nuggets in it to coat or make a glaze with cream cheese, splenda and cream and ice them.

Yield: 16 nuggets
