Cookie Swap: Ricotta Cookies




When I think of getting in the Christmas spirit, I think of baking.  Specifically cookies.  My grandparents make the most delicious Ricotta Cookies, and today I'm here to share them with you.  And as you've learned in the past (here and here), everything my grandparents make is practically a slice of heaven.  You can thank me  them later. ;)




what you'll need: (makes 3-4 dozen)
1 C Butter, softened
2 C Granulated Sugar
1 (15 oz) container of Ricotta Cheese
3 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Baking Soda
4 C All-Purpose Flour

Glaze (powered sugar + milk)
Parchment Paper
Cookie Sheet




what to do:
preheat oven 350 F
Mix all of the ingredients above (butter, sugar, ricotta cheese, vanilla, salt, baking soda and flour) well.  Scoop the cookies (teaspoon size) onto a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper.  Bake for 11-13 minutes at 350F.  Transfer to a cooling rack and let the cookies cool completely.  Optional: Once cooled, dip the cookies into your glaze (using powered sugar and milk) and add sprinkles.  



There you have it the easiest Christmas cookie recipe there ever was.  




What is your favorite Christmas cookie recipe?  What is one of your Christmas traditions?
