Lemon Ricotta Cookies!
Giada De Laurentiis is one of my favorite Food Network chefs. Her dishes are very Italian, yet elegant and simple. One of my favorite recipes of hers is her Lemon Ricotta cookies (recipe link). I've made them once before, and they came out great, but this time I made them a big bigger and flatter. The result is fabulous - the cookies are like little light pillows of lemony goodness. The ricotta doesn't really flavor the cookie, but it gives it a nice chewy texture and ensures that the lemon does not dominate the taste. These are perfect for tea-time, or to wrap up in a neat little package for a co-worker, which is how I used them, this time around!
