Lemon Ricotta Cookies with Lemon Glaze
This month's cookie for the Cookie Carnival was Lemon Ricotta Cookies with Lemon Glaze, a recipe from Giada De Laurentiis (who is just too darn pretty -- it's not fair! LOL).
I don't believe I've ever made a cookie with ricotta in it before, but it was good! The texture was almost like a dense cake, and it reminded me a lot of my Nanny's Pineapple Cookies (I'll have to post about those some day!!). My parents were over for supper, so I whipped these up for them to taste-test for me. My dad tends to like lemon-flavored things, so I figured he would be a good test subject.
I will admit that I didn't make the glaze for it -- I took a poll and everyone agreed I should just skip the glaze (I think they just didn't want to wait that long to try one!). I would deem this recipe a success. The lemon was pleasant, but not overpowering. Instead of the two tablespoons per cookie, I just did a heaping tablespoon of dough per cookie (so just slightly smaller).
I sent ALL of the cookies with my mom; I think she took most of them to work with her this morning. From what I understand, they have been getting good reviews!
You can check out the June round-up for the Cookie Carnival here. You're right, you never did see that cookie pop up here on my blog; unfortunately, I never made it! But you should see everyone else's! :)
