How To Make ricotta cheese cookies

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix all the ingredients together until combined. (The dough will be moist.) Drop by a teaspoon onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes until firm, turning the tray around halfway. (The cookies will be golden on the bottom, but will remain white on top.)
  • 2
    Mix in enough lemon juice with the powdered sugar to make a glaze that can be brushed on. Lightly coat the tops of each cookie with the glaze and sprinkle with the colored sprinkles. Let dry fully before storing.
