I wanted to make cream cheese cookies but no cream cheese. But I had ricotta, fruit, and a cake mix!!! These came out so good, Lite, cake-like citrus sunshine in a cookie. I love semi-homemade. Named after my son, he just loves these cookies!!

Ooooh, these cookies are so good! You get citrus flavor is in every bite. Adding the ricotta keeps them nice and soft. Super yummy! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
