  • Note to parents: Never leave a child unattended in the kitchen. These recipes are appropriate for children of various ages, 4 to 10. When a recipe calls for cooking on the stove, or using a paring knife, an adult should do those activities and let the child assist, if age appropriate.
  • 8 slices Challah bread
  • 1/2 cup cherry all-fruit jelly or jam
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • Confectioners sugar and cocoa powder, for dusting
  • Equipment:
  • Rolling Pin
  • Medium shallow dish
  • Fork or whisk
  • Medium skillet
  • Spatula
  • Fine mesh strainer
  • Flatten each slice of bread with a rolling pin. Place a tablespoon of the jelly and the cheese in the center of each bread. Fold the bread in half, over the jelly and cheese, to make a turnover. Press the edges together lightly with a fork to seal the turnovers. Break the eggs into a shallow bowl and stir with a fork or whisk.

  • Melt a small piece of butter in a medium skillet over medium-low heat. Dip 2 turnovers in the egg mixture and then lay them in the pan. Fry the turnovers for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until golden brown. Use a flat spatula to transfer the turnovers to paper towels to drain. Cool slightly. Repeat with the remaining turnovers.

  • Put a couple spoonfuls of confectioners sugar and cocoa into a fine strainer. Shake the strainer over the turnovers to dust with sugar and cocoa. Serve.
