Ricotta braids.

Time for a new recipe today!
A great treat for your mornings, lovely to see delicious to eat!
They're also light, no eggs, no butter!

2 cups all purpose flour

1 cup 1/2 sugar

1 cup 3/4 fresh ricotta cheese

baking powder

grated zeist from 1 organic lemon

1 pinch salt

milk and sugar to decorate

Knead all the ingredients till you have a smooth loaf, divide it in bites about 2 oz. each, roll to have a cilinder then fold in two and twist the two parts.
Put the braids on a baking pan then brush with some milk and sprinkle with granulated sugar.
Bake about 20-25 minutes at 340 F°.
Once cooled you can freeze the braids; when you need one just pick it up from freezer, wait 3-4 minutes then heat for a while in the oven.
They will be as good as just baked.
