Cookies for the New Year

Now that you’ve made all those cookies for Santa, isn’t it time to try something different for the new year?  I have found a new cookie recipe that meets all my requirements:  1.  it must be easy to make  2.  it can’t be overly sweet  3.  it must be really good!  And so I present to you  RICOTTA COOKIES!

¼ lb butter – softened

¼ cup ricotta

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup sugar

1 egg

2 cups sifted flour

½ tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

Blend softened butter with ricotta until creamy.  Add vanilla.  Mix well.  Add sugar gradually, beating until well blended.  Add egg and mix well.  Slowly stir in dry ingredients and blend well.  Drop from a teaspoon on greased baking pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
Move over brownies….ricotta cookies may start sharing your duty of welcoming Tiffany’s Bed and Breakfast guests at check in!
