Limoncello + Ricotta = Italian Limoncello Ricotta Cookies
April 10, 2017 May 5, 2021
Limoncello and ricotta are two things I make quite often. On the rare occasion when I make both on the same day, well, I just have to make something like these limoncello ricotta cookies.
Cookies are my kryptonite. You can have your pies and cakes, I’m a cookie lover. It’s all I can do to hold myself back from buying the new cookbook dedicated to cookies “Dorie’s Cookies” by Dorie Greenspan. I’ll save it for my Christmas wishlist – I can wait nine months – I can, I can.
I needed some “comfort” cookies today, so tried a recipe from the New York Times. The original recipe called for lemon juice but since I just made limoncello, well, that was a no-brainer to substitute limoncello for lemon juice! The ingredients actually made more cookies than I thought so a few neighbors and friends were recipients of surplus cookies. I don’t dare eat them all!
