Pat'S Ricotta Cookies Recipe @pinch

Ricotta cookies are an Italian specialty. They're soft and a bit creamy with a toasted sugar cookie flavor and topped with a confectioners' sugar glaze. This recipe has an orange drizzle and sprinkles that add a lovely orange flavor to these light cookies. As with most Italian recipes, this makes several dozen cookies. But they're small and easy to pop in your mouth, so they may disappear quickly. Chilling the dough overnight helps these tender cookies keep their puffy shape during baking. A simple orange glaze adds extra sweetness
