- 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
- Rolling Pin
- Medium shallow dish
- Fork or whisk
- Medium skillet
- 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.
