Preparation Time: 20 mins

Cook: 15 mins

Servings: 18


  • 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


Step 1.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Step 2.
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.

Step 3.
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.
