Ricotta Cookies.

I will never be tired of cookies.
My little boy was begging to make some Sunday cookies yesterday.
It didn't take much begging before I obliged.
These are super light, airy and soft, just something different than choc chip or peanut butter.
For that reason, they are one of my favorites to make for bridal/baby showers.

Ricotta Cookies.

4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, room temp
1 1/2 c sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
15 oz ricotta cheese
zest of one orange
2 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
4 tablespoons fresh orange juice

Heat oven to 350.
Whisk flour, baking powder, soda and salt in a bowl.
Beat butter and sugar in another bowl until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Blend in eggs, vanilla, ricotta and orange zest.
Blend in flour mixture, just until combined.
Shape dough into 1-in balls and place on greased cookie sheet.
Bake 8-10 minutes, until bottoms are lightly brown.
Stir sugar into orange juice in bowl until glazing consistency is reached. (You might have to add more sugar or juice).
Dip the tops of each cooled cookie into the glaze and top with chocolate sprinkles.

{makes about 5 dozen}

**post-edit: also DELISH warm with Nutella instead of glaze.

These were really yummy, but it doesn't state the amount of eggs or amt of vanilla, so I had to guess. :)
