The last batch of Christmas Cookies that I made this year was one of my favorites, Lemon Ricotta cookies. The first time I tried these was for last Christmas. The recipe is from Food Network and you can find it here.
I adore ricotta cheese and am happy to find new excuses to use it. I even made my own ricotta cheese on several occasions. I should really do it again soon too.
Anyway, on to the cookies.
The only things I change on this recipe are:
- I’ve used salted butter
- I’ve used skim ricotta
- I have skipped the parchment paper
For this Christmas, the only change was the lack of parchment paper. The environmentalist in me hates using disposable stuff like that. And I don’t have any Silpat sheets.
I don’t get 44 cookies out of them. 2 tablespoons get me about 35 cookies. But those are an awesome 35 cookies.
I wasn’t very careful when I applied the glaze, as you can see by all the drips. These cookies will go very quickly.
