Actually this is not the same recipe as Giada de Laurentis'. Her recipe has an additional 1/2 cup of butter. I have made her recipe too and prefer this recipe. They are just as tender and tasty without the additional 1/2 c. of butter. Served them tonight as an improptu desert with a little vanilla ice cream for a small group of friends and they were a big hit. Do not over bake and I used frozen Minute Maid lemon juice - just like fresh and no zest.

Excellent! This recipe is from Giada de Laurentiis of the Food Network. http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/giada-de-laurentiis/lemon-ricotta-cookies-with-lemon-glaze-recipe/index.html Don't skip the glaze. It adds a tast-sweet brightness to the cookies.
