Orange Ricotta Cookies


Ricotta cookies are among my favorite also and are part of my wonderful childhood memories. Last Christmas I made chocolate/orange ricotta cookies (reminiscent of that segmented-orange, foil-wrapped candy that came in the blue box–sorry can’t remember the name.) Wonderful! 

Ingredients
For the cookies
  • 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • A pinch of kosher salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 2 eggs
  • 8 ounces fresh whole-milk ricotta (drain any excess liquid, if necessary)
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Zest of 1 large orange (about 2 teaspoons)
For the glaze
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 2½ to 3 cups powdered sugar, sifted
