How to make it
- Preheat oven to 350. In large bowl beat sugar and butter until blended on low speed. Increase your speed to high and beat until light and fluffy about 4 or 5 minutes. Lower speed and beat in ricotta, vanilla, and eggs until well combined.
- Reduce speed to low and add flour (little at a time), baking powder and salt. Beat until dough forms. Dough will be very soft. Sometimes I put the dough in the refrigerator for a short time to make it easier to handle.
- Roll dough in balls and place on parchment paper on cookie sheet. Bake about 12 minutes. Cookies will be soft. Remove to wire rack to cool.
- Ice after cookies are completely cool. Let dry for a few hours.
- Variations - can add chocolate chips to the batter
- can sprinkle icing with coconut
- can use sprinkles on icing for Christmas or color the icing
