If you love lemon and basil, you'll love these cookies. The ricotta keeps them nice and moist. Adapted and tweaked from a Giada de Laurentiis recipe. She didn't use basil, but I thought they screamed for it! Depending on your cookie scoop or spoon size, you can expect to get about 36-40 cookies out of this. This cookie is more cake-like and is not a crisp cookie.
