    Lemon Ricotta Cookies with Lemon Glaze

    2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 stick butter, softened
    2 cups sugar
    2 eggs
    1 (15 oz) container whole milk ricotta cheese
    3 tablespoons lemon juice
    1 lemon, zested
    yellow food coloring-optional

    1-1/2 cups powdered sugar
    3 tablespoons lemon juice
    1 lemon, zested
    yellow food coloring--optional


Oven 375 degrees

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

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

Line 2 baking sheet with parchment paper. Spoon dough (about 2 tablespoons per cookie) onto baking sheets. Bake: 15 minutes, until slight golden at the edges. Remove from oven and let cookies rest on the baking sheet for 20 minutes. (Cookies are ‘cake-like’; therefore, they are very soft.)

Glaze: Combine ingredients in a small bowl; stir until smooth. Spoon about ˝ teaspoon onto each cook and use back of spoon to gently spread. Let the glaze harden for about 2 hours. Pack the cookies into a decorative container.
