Are you looking for a simple recipe, maybe your new to baking and looking for something that will be straight forward well these cookies are it. I can’t help but thing of all the many uses I have for these cookies: church socials, school parties and PTA, entertaining with friends, perfect for bringing to work, like I said there perfect for_______________ (I’m sure you’ll find something). Today’s recipe comes courtesy of Giada de Laurentiis and Food Network.


Lemon Ricotta Cookies w/Lemon Glaze





Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.


In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

In the large bowl combine the butter and the sugar. Using an electric mixer beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating until incorporated. Add the ricotta cheese, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Beat to combine. Stir in the dry ingredients.

Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Spoon the dough (about 2 tablespoons for each cookie) onto the baking sheets. Bake for 15 minutes, until slightly golden at the edges. Remove from the oven and let the cookies rest on the baking sheet for 20 minutes.


Combine the powdered sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest in a small bowl and stir until smooth. Spoon about 1/2-teaspoon onto each cookie and use the back of the spoon to gently spread. Let the glaze harden for about 2 hours. Pack the cookies into a decorative container.
