These soft, cake-like cookies are bursting with lemon flavor. These Lemon Ricotta Cookies are some of the best cookies I have ever made!
This past weekend I was in my hometown of St. Louis. Apparently they skipped spring in the Lou and went straight to summer – it was so hot! Summer always makes me think of lemon desserts. The bright citrusy flavor and the yellow color reminds me of long sunny summer days. So I decided to make these lemon ricotta cookies to celebrate the season. These cookies are like mini cakes! They are light, fluffy, and moist. The lemon flavor in the actual cookie is subtle and when paired with the lemon glaze the flavor really pops.
This recipe is from Giada, one of my favorites on the Food Network. She uses ricotta in a lot of her recipes – I love the Italian twist on this cookie. These Lemon Ricotta Cookies might become your new favorite!
I love lemon! Here are some other delicious lemon recipes.
