Italian Ricotta Cookies

These were one of my new favorite Christmas Cookies! They are very soft and tasty. I bet you can't eat just one!

Makes 72 ( 1 cookie = 3 points +)

  • 1 c. butter

  • 2 c. sugar

  • 1/2 tsp. salt

  • 1 lb. part skim Ricotta

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 tsp. vanilla

  • 4-1/2 c. flour

  • 1 tsp. baking powder

  • 1 tsp. baking soda

  • 1/2 c. butter

  • 4 c. powdered sugar

  • 1 tsp. vanilla

  • 6 T. skim milk

Beat butter and sugar together. Add egg and Ricotta and vanilla; beat well. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add to batter.

Drop about a teaspoon of dough onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely on wire racks.

For frosting beat butter. Add powdered sugar and vanilla. Add milk as needed. Frost cookies and add sprinkles if desired. You will not use all of the frosting.

  1. This recipe looks pretty delicious, my only problem is I don't think I noticed the points plus value?
