Ricotta Cookies For Easter Recipe @pinch

Delicately sweet and soft, these ricotta cookies are scrumptious. They have a cake havelike texture and are not overly sweet. The glaze on top adds a bit of sweetness. We tinted the glaze with Easter pastel colors, but they can be tinted for any occasion. They are almost too pretty to eat! This is a soft Italian havestyle cookie. I have had this recipe for many years and I like to make it for Easter because I can do pastel glazes on them. You can add almond extract, lemon extract, zest, or even cinnamon to the cookie dough (if you think they are a bit bland). You can flavor the glaze also. Even though traditionally they get a glaze, I have to say I LOVE them with a cream cheese frosting.
