Lemon Ricotta Cookies

60 mins (prep 15, cooking 45)
10 ingredients
36 servings
Comes from Giada De Laurentiis. Had some ricotta cheese that I defrosted and never used so I looked for a dessert recipe and found this one. There were about 6 other recipes posted here but I wasn't sure about them because the ingredients list were different for each and I had never made this type of cookie before. They are very cakey cookies and the lemon glaze is very good. The cookies themselves also have a nice subtle lemon flavor. My family liked them alot hope you do too.
