It was Ricotta, ran through the Robo Coup w/ some lavender sprigs, a dash of vanilla, local clover honey, and some 10X sugar, pushed thru a chimoise, and folded into a little fresh whipped cream for body. Into a piping bag, piped, and topped with seasonal berries(macerated in sugar, a tiny bit of brandy, and their own juices).

1/2 TEAspoon of baking SODA
1/2++ teaspoon of lemon zest or lemon extract
2 cups of flour

prehead oven 350F I used 3-large cookie sheets lined w/parchment paper

mix wet ingredients first - then add dry ingredients. (a hand-held mixer works just fine) to form a sticky dough
drop by TEAspoons onto the cookie sheets

bake 12 minutes (until the edges start to turn golden---don't burn)...start watcching after 10-minutes thru the glass oven window

while still warm you may want to sprinkle flavored sugars on top (you can find these flavored sugars in the bake decorating isle of your grocery store--usually have about 6-flavors in one container)
I used cappuccino sugar, raspberry sugar, lots of powdered sugar, and left the rest plain....

I ended up with 53 splendid cookies that Hubby sure enjoyed
I added about 2 tsp of rose water and mint. Waiting for the first batch. The dough is very soft. I dipped a small glass in water and flattened the balls.

I found the cookies to be cake-like and very bland (even with cocoa powder-powder sugar on them). I "dressed" 12 of them with a lemon glaze (the cookies reminded me of my grandma's orange cookies). Much better with the glaze. The DH is on his way out to the farm--he eats almost everything, so we'll see what he thinks of these.
