These are soft cake-like cookies that have a hint of lemon flavor that are just perfect for dunking in your cup of coffee or tea!
Preparation Time: 20 mins
Cook: 15 mins
- ⅔ cup whole-milk ricotta cheese
- ⅔ cup white sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 lemon, zested
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
Beat ricotta, sugar, egg, vanilla, and lemon zest in a large bowl with an electric mixer. Gradually beat in flour and baking powder; mix until well combined.
Use a small 1 1/2-tablespoon cookie scoop to scoop up dough and form into a ball with floured hands. Roll the ball of dough into a rope, approximately 7 inches long, on a very lightly floured surface. Shape the rope into a ribbon and place on a baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining dough, arranging 9 cookies per baking sheet. Sprinkle cookies with powdered sugar.
