"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

8 oz. ricotta cheese
1/2 cup grated locatelli cheese
1/4 cup flat leaf parsley, chopped
1/4 cup basil, chopped

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 400. After the dough has risen, divide it into 4 equal parts. Let rest 10 minutes, covered with a kitchen towel. In a bowl, mix everything except the evoo. Set aside. On a floured surface, roll each of the dough parts into a circle--you want it thin, but not so thin it will rip. Fill each with 1/4 of the cheese mixture and fold over to create a "half moon". Seal the edges with a fork. (dip the fork in flour if the dough is sticky). Place on a greased cookie sheet and brush each with evoo, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or till golden brown.

Personal Notes:
Try serving these with a side of marinara sauce. And for variety, you can add sausage, pepperoni or roasted peppers. Go ahead--be creative. Let them cool before cutting in half, but if you're like my family, you won't be able to wait!
