¼ cup ricotta cheese

¼ cup butter, room temp

1 cup sugar

2 T lemon juice

zest of 1 lemon

1 egg

2 cups flour

½ tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt


Blend butter with ricotta until creamy and then add the lemon juice & zest and mix well.

Gradually add sugar until well blended and then add the egg. Mix very well.

Slowly stir in flour, baking soda and salt.

Drop onto a lined baking sheet and bake at 350 for about 10-12 minutes. This makes about 2 dozen.

Whisk together 1 cup confectioners sugar and the zest & juice of 1 lemon. It will be syrupy. Glaze to the cookies with this.  If you do it while they’re hot then it will ooze down and there will be a thin glaze.  If done while they’re cold, it will be thicker.
