    List of Ingredients

    Chocolate Fritters - (Cuscinetti Di Teramo)

    Ingredients :

    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1 pch salt
    2 1/2 tbl sugar
    1 x lemon zested
    1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil plus
    2 cup extra-virgin olive oil for frying
    2 tbl sweet white wine
    1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chopped medium fine
    1/3 cup hazelnuts toasted, and
    coarsely chopped
    1/4 cup apricot jam
    1 x egg lightly beaten
    Honey for brushing

    Method :
    Place the flour on a clean work surface and add the salt, sugar, lemon zest, oil, and enough wine to make a firm but tender dough. Knead for 5 minutes, then wrap the dough in plastic and let it rest 30 minutes.
    In the meantime, make the filling by combining the chocolate, nuts, and jam and mix with a spoon. Set aside, covered.
    Roll the dough out to 1/4-inch thickness and, using a 3-inch cookie cutter, cut out as many circles as possible. Place a dab of filling on each circle of dough, moisten the edges with a bit of beaten egg, and fold each round in half, pressing them shut with finger pressure or a fork.
    In a tall-sided pot, heat the oil to 350 degrees and fry the until they are deep golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Brush each fritter with honey and serve hot or cold.
    This recipe yields 6 to 8 servings, about 30 to 32 fritters.
