Cannoli Zeppole

(Makes about 18)
Cannoli Zeppole
Ingredients:

1 cup ricotta cheese
2 eggs
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
2 teaspoons Marsala
Grated zest of 1 medium orange
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup pistachios, finely chopped
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Vegetable oil for frying
Confectioners' sugar for dusting

Directions:

Combine all of the ingredients, except the oil and confectioners' sugar in a bowl.  Stir to blend the ingredients into a batter.

Heat oil in a deep fryer to 350 degrees F.
Use a 1-1/2 inch scoop or two spoons to drop balls of dough into the oil.
Only fry 6 to 7 zeppole at a time so that the temperature of the oil does not reduce too much.  Fry them until they are golden brown all around, about 5-6 minutes per batch. Transfer the browned zeppole to a paper-towel lined plate.  Serve warm dusted with confectioners' sugar.
