Lemon Ricotta Cookies
Ricotta in a cookie may sound a bit strange, but ricotta cheese is no
stranger to desserts. Ricotta is a cheese made from
the whey (liquid) left over from cheese production. It is a soft, creamy white cheese similar to small curd cottage cheese but much
lighter and sweeter. You may be most familiar with ricotta from
calzones or lasagna, but when beaten smooth and combined with sugar,
spices, or other flavors it can be used in cheesecakes, as cannoli
filling, or even be a dessert on its own. This recipe combines the ricotta with white sugar and lemon zest for a dense cakey
citrus cookie. It has a wonderful texture and subtle flavor of its own, but
when topped with lemon glaze this cookie really sings. The glaze
gives it a very finished look and provides a firm texture
which melts in your mouth.
