    Montana Heart Song's Note:

    This recipe contains the grated rind of one orange. Almost 6 dozen cookies. The frosting has orange juice instead of milk. Place cooled cookies in glass jars with lids and freeze. Perfect for gift giving. I save pickle jars for filling.

      My mother-in-law recently mentioned how much she loved ricotta cookies so I decided I wanted to surprise her and make some. I came across this recipe, got all the ingredients, and made these ricotta cookies for my mother-in-law. She LOVED them! She said they were even better than the family recipe she had been eating for years. <br/><br/>Not only did she love them but everyone else did too! They were fabulous! I would give this recipe more stars if I could. Easy to make and easy to eat, this recipe is a must-have in my recipe box. Thank you for sharing it! <br/><br/>Note: I guess I made my cookies smaller than the recipe called for so I got 121 ricotta cookies! Perfect for a Christmas party, or any other type of get-together! I plan on making these next week for my family's Christmas party - I think I'll top them with red and green sprinkles for a holiday touch! Thanks again! <br/><br/>I would highly recommend these to anybody!
