Italian Ricotta Cookies

 

Italian Ricotta Cookies are a must have in our home.    An easy to make recipe and fun for the children to dip into the icing and cover with sprinkles, they’ll  not only look forward to eating them, but making them as well.  We bake these light and fluffy delights for Christmas and Easter and they have become a family holiday tradition and a great addition to the dessert table.
