Pinterest Challenge – Week 3

For this week’s Pinterest Challenge, I made Giada’s Lemon Ricotta Cookies. BFF introduced me to these wonderful little cookies when I visited her over Christmas, so I decided to make them for Brittany’s baby shower last weekend. I think they turned out fabulous! I’ll definitely make these again.



2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 stick softened, unsalted butter
2 cups sugar
2 eggs (I used egg substitute)
1 (15 oz) container ricotta cheese (I used part skim)
3 tbsp lemon juice
1 lemon, zested
Lemon Glaze

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3 tbsp lemon juice
1 lemon, zested

1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and
3. In a separate bowl, cream together butter and sugar.
4. Mix in 1 egg at a time to the butter and sugar mixture.
5. Mix in ricotta, lemon juice, and lemon zest (I also
added 1 tsp of vanilla).
6. Add dry ingredients to the wet and stir to combine.
7. Spoon 2 tbsp of cookie dough onto parchment lined
cookie sheets.
8. Bake for 15 minutes or until edges are golden brown
(My oven took 17 minutes).
9. Cool for 20 minutes.
10. While cooling, assemble glaze.
11. Combine powdered sugar, lemon juice, and lemon
zest in a small bowl.
12. Spoon 1/2 tsp over cooled cookies.
13. Let the glaze set up and harden on the cookies for
about 2 hours.
14. Enjoy the lemony goodness!
