I’ve finally gotten around to baking my first Christmas cookie of 2011. Today’s cookies are Lemon Ricotta Drops. The cookie portion is light and fluffy with a nice almond and faint lemon flavor. They are topped off with a simple glaze that has a very tart lemon flavor.
I took the easy way out by using a cookie scoop but you can make them more uniform but cutting them out with cookie cutters. I like the more rustic look of the drop cookies instead of perfect rounds plus is saves a ton of time.
