¼ cup ricotta cheese
¼ cup butter, room temp
1 cup sugar
2 T lemon juice
zest of 1 lemon
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.
