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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

These were simple to make and relatively healthy as cookies go with no butter and little sugar. Delicate and lovely tasting. Read More
