Directions/Steps
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In large bowl, with mixer at low speed, beat sugar and margarine or butter until blended.
  2. Increase speed to high; beat until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. At medium speed, beat in ricotta, vanilla, and eggs until well combined.
  3. Reduce speed to low. Add flour, baking powder, and salt; beat until dough forms.
  4. Drop dough by level tablespoons, about 2 inches apart, onto ungreased large cookie sheet. Bake about 15 minutes or until cookies are very lightly golden (cookies will be soft). With pancake turner, remove cookies to wire rack to cool. Repeat with remaining dough.
  5. When cookies are cool, prepare icing: In small bowl, stir confectioners\' sugar and milk until smooth. With small metal spatula or knife, spread icing on cookies; sprinkle with red or green sugar crystals. Set cookies aside to allow icing to dry completely, about 1 hour.

Really enjoyed this one, although I skipped the icing. I also added orange zest.
Best part was stumping my friends at the cookie exchange on the 'secret ingredient' - nobody guessed ricotta cheese! :-)

Very easy recipe. These cookies were a big hit yesterday. We sprinkled red and green sugar over the icing and they looked beautiful.

Been looking at this receipe for a while now, and tonight I finally tried them...very easy, very tasty (even the hubby who isn't a "sweet" eater likes them. I did not vary from the instructions (which I normally do!)but there are a few variations you could try - like drizzling with chocolate! I got 60 cookies from this receipe using the small cookie scoop, good size. Will definately make them again...

Very good cookies- not too sweet, perfect with good coffee or espresso> I have a question though- what's the best way to store these for a few days?

My son-in-law gave me the best compliment aboutthe ricotta cookies at yesterday's holiday gathering. He said they tasted just like the ones his mother used to make. Also he requested that I make them again next year.

I use 1 tsp. vanilla and 1 tsp. anise flavoring in the cookie mix and 1 tbsp. anisette along with 2 tbsp. milk in the icing. Been doing this for over 40 yrs. Excellent cookies.
