    Do you need to keep these cookies in the refrigerator?

    For shame- this is an EXACT plagiarized copy of Giada De Laurentiis's lemon ricotta cookies. Another reviewer, Cindergirl claimed it was not an "exact" copy because this recipe calls for 1/2 the amount of butter. But I think she should take another look at her measurement equivalents... 1 stick of butter is equal to a half cup of butter (not a whole cup). So yes this is an exact copy. Very dishonest to claim another's work as your own....

    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.

    I took these to work today, and they were a huge hit (and my colleagues are all foodies-- so, they can be a tough crowd)! Most people who tried them thought they were scones, not cookies. I'd have to agree that they're a bit too cakey to be called cookes. In any case, they have a light, bright lemony flavor. The perfect treat for a warm spring day.

    I only made half the recipe because I had leftover ricotta. I added a 1/2 teaspoon vanilla to the batter and only made cookies one tablespoon size . Easier to glaze them when cookies are warm. Simple cookie but flavorful.
