Ingredients:  
1 large egg
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon finely grated fresh orange zest
1/2 teaspoon fresh orange juice
1/2 cup whole-milk ricotta
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt

Confectioners sugar for dusting

Directions:
Directions:
Whisk together egg and granulated sugar, then whisk in zest, juice, ricotta, flour, cardamom, vanilla and salt until just combined. Heat oil in a 10-inch heavy skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking. Working in batches of 4, spoon 1 tablespoon of batter per fritter into oil and fry, turning over once, until golden on both sides, about 2 minutes. Transfer with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain and cool slightly.

Dust fritters with confectioners sugar and serve immediately.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
These are so good and very easy to make. It helps to make the batter and refrigerate it for about an hour (maybe while you cook and eat dinner) before frying it. You can use lemon or lime instead of orange as well. If you aren't going to eat them right away, don't dust them with the sugar until later- they'll get gummy if you do.
