Italian Ricotta Cookies

Italian Ricotta Cookies are soft and tender, cake-like cookies with a sweet and simple icing. They have a light lemon flavor and plenty of moisture thanks to the rich ricotta. They’re holiday classic and such a fun recipe to try if you’ve never made them.

Our favorite ricotta cookies! They’re easy to make and they’re always consistently delicious.

They’re so good that you can never stop at just one.

The ricotta cookie dough can be made two days in advance so it’s a great make ahead recipe. Plus it makes a huge batch of cookies so they’re great for celebrations and gifting.
