    Delightful. Do you think the Lemon Ricotta Cookies dough would keep in the freezer? I often make up cookie and freeze logs for later so I don't bake more than Mr. SuchAFuss will eat in a week.

    I can't believe I forgot to rate these! What was I thinking? Sorry Dahlia! :) These are A-1 fabulous, delicious, little pieces of lemony heaven! The texture is divine and the flavor is just perfect, not overwhelming at all (sometimes I find that lemon can be overwhelming). I was addicted after the first bite! :)

    Dahlia....these were sublime. I've never made a cookie like that ever. Love the texture and the light lemony flavour. I will totally make these again. But next time I'll double the batch! :) Full review on IMI.

    I try and avoid bookmarking 'baking' recipes I'm not near as teeny as you Dahlia! But...after Brooke's rave review, I feel that I must try them out. Will bring the batch into my staff and try only eat one (or two :) )

    Sounds absolutely fabulous! Love the lemon iced cookies from Ham N Goodys...they don't have ricotta though. That sounds even better!!! Can't wait to try.
