Lemon-Ricotta Cookies

adsense 336x280 These soft, almost cake-like cookies with a hint of lemon flavor are perfect for dunking in your cup of coffee or tea. My husband loves these as they are not overly sweet.

Lemon-Ricotta Cookies

  • ⅔ cup whole-milk ricotta cheese
  • ⅔ cup white sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract  
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar

 Step 1
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

 Step 2
Beat ricotta, sugar, egg, vanilla, and lemon zest in a large bowl with an electric mixer. Gradually beat in flour and baking powder; mix until well combined.

 Step 3
Use a small 1 1/2-tablespoon cookie scoop to scoop up dough and form into a ball with floured hands. Roll the ball of dough into a rope, approximately 7 inches long, on a very lightly floured surface. Shape the rope into a ribbon and place on a baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining dough, arranging 9 cookies per baking sheet. Sprinkle cookies with powdered sugar.

 Step 4
Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 15 to 16 minutes. Transfer cookies to wire racks and cool completely.
