recipe wednesday- lemon ricotta cookies

Umm I can not tell you how much I love these cookies! One of my favorite for sure! So light and moist, they are perfect!

Here is my recipe:
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 stick butter
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
10 oz whole milk ricotta
5-6 oz plain yogurt
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 lemon zested or 1 teaspoon oil of lemon

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 lemon zested or 1/4 teaspoon oil of lemon

combine flour, baking powder and salt. In another bowl combine butter and sugar-beat until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time-beating until incorporated. Add ricotta, yogurt, lemon juice, and zest. Beat. Stir in dry ingredients.

Drop the batter (2 tablespoons per cookie) onto a cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for maybe 15 minutes. You want to bake them only until the very under edge has some browning. That is it. With this cookie it is better to under bake a bit than over bake so be careful! Let cool and then glaze :)
*Note-I usually set my oven to 350 so I make sure not to over bake. You want these to be super moist!
