Lemon ricotta cookies are sunshine-y little bites of win. They're also completely addicting, so consider yourself warned.
The weather has been all kinds of crazy here in Ohio. One day it feels as though fall is knocking at our door and the next it’s 85 with a gazillion percent humidity. It’s bad for my sugar cravings and my hair.
If I’m being honest, I’m ready for fall weather – sweaters and boots – they’re my jam. And there’s nothing better than a crackling fire and cozying up the couch with a warm mug of cocoa.
Last weekend, I was in lemon kind of mood and happened to have a large bag of them on hand. I remembered a recipe for lemon ricotta cookies that I bookmarked ages ago. I quickly scanned the recipe and had the dough whipped up about 10 minutes later.
Lemon ricotta cookies are loaded with fresh lemon zest, creamy ricotta cheese and then they’re dipped in a sweet and citrusy lemon glaze that puts them over-the-top in the most delicious of ways. Yep, I totally just busted a rhyme there.
I’m a lemon lover through and through, but my boyfriend, Eric, is not. When I make lemon desserts, he’ll take a bite here, and a nibble there, and then question where the chocolate is. However, I could not keep him away from these little bites of sunshine.
He popped them into his mouth one after another. According to him, the glaze makes these cookies and I have to agree – it’s fantastic. Their soft cake-like texture is another selling point; they literally melt in your mouth.
I could go on and on about these lemon ricotta cookies, but I think you should whip up a batch and taste them for yourself!
