Ricotta cheese rolls.

Nice recipe for a light afternoon break, for a children party or even for a simple treat for the whole family without regrets.

2+1/3 cups all purpose flour

7 spoons skimmed milk

7 spoons seeds oil

3 spoons sugar

2 cups fresh ricotta cheese

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon vanilla flavour

1 egg white

1/2 cup hazelnuts toasted and minced

1/2 dark chocolate drops

Mix ricotta cheese with milk, add sugar, salt, oil then the flour sifted with baking powder.
Knead untill you have a smooth loaf and let it rest into the fridge for about 1 hour.
Divide the dough in 2 parts, same size and with a rollpin spread them in a rectangular shape, spread the dough sheets with egg white, lightly whisked, then sprinkle with hazelnuts and chocolate drops.
Roll the two parts and cut each into slices about 1/2 inch tall.
Put them on a baking pan and bake for about 20-25 minutes at 356 F°.

You can choose many other filling: cinnamon and apples, almonds and chocolate...Just chop them in tiny pieces!
