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.
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.
