Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

1 big apple
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1-2 tblsp sugar

100 g ricotta (3.5 oz)
4 tblsp oil (I use olive oil)
4 tblsp milk
70 g sugar (2.5 oz)
a pinch of salt
200 g flour (7 oz)
1 1/1 teaspoons baking powder


Wash and peel the apple, remove the core and dice it. Cook the apple with sugar (the quantity of sugar depends on the apple you are using, whether it's very sweet or not, and your taste) and 2 tablspoons of water in a sauce pan for about 8 mins, to become soft. Remove from heat and leave to cool. When cold, add the lemon juice.

Sift the flour with baking powder, add oil, milk, ricotta, salt and sugar. Mix everything with a wooden spoon, form a ball, and kneed lightly to get a soft dough. If it's too sticky add a bit more flour.

Flour the working surface or a sheet of parchment paper and roll out the dough into a square, 3-4 mm thick. Cut it into squares, distribute apple filling, and then fold the squares, leaving one side open and pressing the other two edges with your hands.

Bake for 15 minutes in an oven preheated to 195°C. Let them cool and sprinkle with powdered sugar if you like.

Questions, Comments & Reviews

Those cushions taste as good as they look. They are fast and easy to make but yet look like you fussed over them. The dough is a charm to work with. I will make these again

This looks and sounds amazing! It is simular to a old recipies that I having using Bakers Cheese inplace of the Ricotta. Do you have bakers cheese in Italy?

I can almost smell them!! Thank you for posting the recipe. I think I just might have to make this when I wake up :)
