These sweet cookies, made with ricotta, are a treat that my mother used to make when I was little. The cheese gives them a wonderful, tender texture that is a hit with everyone from my kids to the local cowboys. I top these cookies with a light, creamy frosting that makes them extra sweet.
TIP: This batter is really stiff, so when you add the ricotta, you’ll want to take your time folding the cheese into the mixture until it is well combined. You can also make this recipe with a stand mixer, but the final folding should always be done by hand.
