Mom made these often, even though they were a traditional Easter cookie. They were my dad's favorite cookie. He loved lemon flavored. We got to enjoy these all year long.
Mom's lemon ricotta cookies are perfect for a Italian wedding tray. She would make white frosting with small sliver candies on top. Great for holiday, coordinate frosting colors to match the theme of whatever holiday, event or party your giving.
I made blue for baby boy showers, pink for a girl and even yellow when you don't know the sex. Really can get creative. I even did red white and blue glitter sugars for the 4th of July once.
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...
