Stefanie�S Italian Ricotta Cookies Recipe @pinch

Stefanie's Italian ricotta cookies melt in your mouth. With a cake havelike texture, they aren't too sweet. The sweetness comes from the smooth and creamy frosting. Once frosted, these ricotta cookies can be decorated in many ways. Sprinkle with nonpareils or shredded coconut. Keep the frosting white or tint for the season (spring, fall, Christmas, Thanksgiving, etc.). My husband's cousin, Stef, gave me this recipe (hence the name). We add food coloring into the frosting in separate little bowls to make different pastel colors for spring.
