Mom's Lemon Ricotta Cookie Recipe

Seriously delicious addicting cookies. These are perfect for a wedding tray, holiday, coordinate them to the theme and colors of whatever party your giving. Great for giving as a gift as they travel well also. Mom made these often and they were one of my dad's favorite cookies. A lemony flavored cookie that is light and airy not dense. They even taste good over cooked which I have been known to forget the cookies baking in the oven when I start baking! Hope you enjoy her recipe. Thanks mom we all miss you everyday, until we meet again we will enjoy your recipes you left behind to share with the world and you will remain forever in our kitchens and in our hearts, until we meet again...
