Hello Jennifer,

Hi Patty,

The below recipe is what I found with the name cassateddi that you sent. This one is chocolate rather than lemon. I could not find a lemon one.

There is also a long article about them here:




4 c. sifted flour
1/2 sugar
3/4 c shortening
2 eggs
Milk as needed

Combine flour and sugar. Cut in shortening. Mix in eggs and add in some 
milk to get dough consistency kind of like soft pie dough. Kind of between 
pie dough and roll out cookie dough if that makes any sense.

1 lb drained ricotta (I prefer whole milk)
1 oz chopped semi sweet chocolate
1/4 tsp cinnamon
3 heaping tsp sugar

Mix all ingred. in med bowl until smooth. Refrigerate for at least an hour. 
(so make the filling first)
Roll out dough to about 1/8 inch thickness and cut out in about 4 inch circles, 
put about 1/2 tsp of filling in center, fold over and seal edges. Deep fry, cool 
slightly and then dust with powdered sugar.Great served warm or chilled. 

School Cafeteria No-Bake cookies

This is a recipe from many school cafeterias in Missouri for many year 
my parents remember it and they are in there fifties and some schools 
still sell it.


School Cafeteria No-Bake Cookies

2 cups sugar 
1/2 cup cocoa 
1/2 cup milk
stir ingredients together in saucepan and cook 1 or 2 minutes.

can also be made without the cocoa for peanut butter oatmeal cookies 
and sometime was made with cheerios instead of oats.
