Ricotta Cheese Cookies

1 cup = 1 stick of REAL softened butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 carton = 7.5oz of FULL-FAT Ricotta Cheese
1 egg
2 TEAspoons vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
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

You couldn't know this but I luuuuuuuvvv to make cookies! Every year in November I go cookie baking crazy & bake at least 12 varieties of cookies to fill baskets for loved ones. They look forward to those & have their favorites too. I have my faves, but I love to try new recipes. When I get a chance to get back to the store I want to make these soon. I can almost smell them, mmmm, ricotta cheese, mmmmmm. Thanks for the recipe. :)

Timely--I threw a container of Ricotta in my grocery cart on Wednesday when I ran down to NY to get some things. I will have to try these! I think I might add some ground cardamon and use lime instead of lemon! Thanks.

Thank you for posting the Ricotta Cookie recipe ... Ricotta is one of our staples ... I like desserts made with it too, for example: Pears filled with Ricotta and Siclian Cannoli ... Though challenging to prepare ...

Have nice wkend.

Indeed. I think that ricotta is one of the best fruit pairing cheeses when it comes to desserts. Here is some of these little 3 bite martini glasses, with lavender Ricotta Mousse, macerated berries, and local clover honey. Such a refreshing dessert.
