Ricotta Cookies II Delicate Italian ricotta cookies with an almond flavored glaze. Very good!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).Advertisement
In a medium bowl, cream together butter, sugar, eggs, ricotta cheese, and vanilla extract. Combine the flour, baking powder, and baking soda; blend into the creamed mixture, mixing in additional flour as necessary to form a workable dough. Roll dough into teaspoon-sized balls, and arrange on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly browned.
In a medium bowl, beat milk, confectioners’ sugar, and almond extract until smooth. Spoon over warm cookies, and sprinkle with colored candy sprinkles.
