Beat eggs in large bowl until fluffy. Add 1/2 cup sugar and vanilla, and mix well. Add ricotta and blend. Combine flour and baking powder, and fold into egg mixture a little at a time. Cover bowl with towel and let batter rest 1 hour at room temperature.
In deep fryer or saucepan, heat about 2 cups oil over medium heat, and drop a few tablespoons batter into hot oil. When fritters turn golden, 3 to 4 minutes, transfer to plate and blot excess oil off with paper towel. Repeat with remaining batter.
Roll fritters in remaining 1 cup sugar and serve hot or cold.
