After a recent visit to my brother's house I brought home a bagful of delicious meyer lemons, one of my favorite citrus fruits. The dilemma now was what to make with them. I've done lemon bars and mini tarts numerous times so I was looking for something new.
I remembered seeing these lemon ricotta cookies on an episode of Giade De Laurentiis' Everyday Italian. The addition of ricotta cheese to a cookie intrigued me enough to give the recipe a try.
The cookies baked up flatter than I was hoping for but were still quite good. Actually, the taste and shape of the baked rounds reminded me a little of whoopie pies. The lemon glaze topping gave the cookies a hit of tart sweetness, perfect with a cup of tea.
