Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter

  • 16 ounces ricotta cheese
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. With a pastry blender, cut in the butter until mixture resembles cornmeal.
