      Title: Panzarotti (fried cheese-filled crescents)
 Categories: Italian, Cheese/eggs
      Yield: 4 Servings
  2 1/4 c  All-purpose flour
    1/4 c  Plus
      3 tb Butter
      1    Egg yolk

      4 oz Mozzarella
      3 oz Cooked ham
      2    Eggs
    1/2 c  Grated Parmesan cheese
           Pinch of nutmeg
      2 tb Chopped parsley
      2    Eggs, beaten
           Oil for frying
  Sift the flour into a mound, make a well in the center and add the
  butter, cut into pieces, a pinch of salt and an egg yolk. Mix
  together, kneading and gradually adding sufficient water to obtain a
  smooth elastic dough. Shape into a ball, cover and leave to stand in
  a cool place for at least 1/2 hour. Roll out, folding the dough over
  on to itself a few times, as if making flaky pastry, then roll out
  into a thin sheet. Cut into circles about 3 inches in diameter. Dice
  the Mozzarella, cut the ham into pieces and place in a bowl with the
  2 whole eggs, grated Parmesan, pinch of nutmeg and chopped parsley.
  Mix well, then spoon a little into the center of each circle. Brush
  the edges with beaten egg, fold over and press gently. Heat plenty of
  oil in a skillet. When hot, dip the crescents in beaten egg and then
  fry, a few at a time, until golden brown and puffed up. Drain well on
  paper towles and serve piping hot.
