These ingredients are able to feed: 30persons Pan Ricotta (cottage cheese)


In 100 ml of warm milk dissolve the brewer's yeast and 2 teaspoons of sugar. I let the mixture stand, covered, until you see a light foam on the surface. In the remaining 200 ml of milk (warmed) I melt the remaining sugar. I melt the butter.

In a large bowl I put the flour to which I add the mixture made with milk, sugar and yeast, and I begin kneading. I continue kneading adding the remaining milk and melted butter. When I get a homogeneous dough, I transfer it on a flat surface and add the salt. I continue to knead for 10-15 minutes.
In this way, I get a smooth dough and elastic too. Then I put the dough in a bowl in a warm place (I leave it in the oven that I slightly warmed before, at about 37 degree C). Finally, I allow to rise at least two hours or until the dough has doubled in volume.

I put the dough on a flat surface. Continuous kneading to give it the shape of a cylinder from which they can cut the portions of approximately 30 g each.
To get the classic form of sandwiches just bring the edges of each portion below so as to give round shape the typical smooth and to each one of it.
I put the sandwiches on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper for baking, sprinkling milk on their surface and letting it rise for another 30 minutes (always in a warm oven).
Bake the rolls at 220 ° C about 10 minutes but (before baking) sprinkle them with beaten egg, to make them shiny!

For the filling:
Drain residual water from the ricotta cheese.
Add sugar and chocolate, mix well and let stand for several hours, preferably a whole day, so that the sugar can melt properly. If you wish use immediately the filling you can replace granulated sugar with icing sugar.

The Panricotta:
The sandwiches are stuffed with about 30 grams of filling (of course the amount with which to fill the sandwiches is completely to your liking).
