Batter-Dipped Cheese Balls
 
  batter
3/4 cup  milk
2 Tbsp  brandy
2 Tbsp  olive oil
1   egg yolk
1-1/2 cup  flour
1 Tbsp  baking powder (check date for freshness)
  honey or confectioners' sugar
  filling
1 lb.  (16 oz) sweet myzithra (or ricotta)
2 Tbsp  sugar (or more, to taste)
1 tsp  cinnamon
2 cup  olive oil for frying
 
whisk the batter ingredients, liquids and egg yolk first, adding the flour 
and baking powder slowly until you have a batter that resembles a thick 
custard. with electric mixer, mash myzithra or ricotta with the sugar and 
cinnamon until smooth. both cheese and batter can be made ahead of time. 
have fryer ready at 350 degrees f. with (boiling) oil for frying. make 
little balls out of the cheese mixture. dip each ball in the batter and 
brown a few at a time quickly in the hot oil. lift out with a slotted 
spoon, drain on rack or paper towels, and serve with honey or 
confectioners' sugar. because they cook so quickly, have someone help by 
removing them as you prepare them. makes about 40 balls.
