    These were good.. my parents loved them but I was a little less thrilled. They used less ricotta than other recipes I have made and turned out a little drier also. I think 15 minutes was a little too long, so after my first tray I reduced the cooking time to 10 minutes, and those turned out better. Maybe next time I will increase ricotta to 1/2 cup to make them a little more moist or fluffy or something. I liked that the recipe did not make too many, though, it was the perfect size batch.

    Very good- only 4 because DH didn't care for them. However, DD thought they were better than chocolate chip! I made red and green glaze and used a fork to drizzle over the cooled cookies-- looked very festive.

    Delicious cookies! These were slightly crispy on the outside and soft and tender on the inside. I followed your directions and wouldn't change a thing. I believe my Aunt Mae used to make these, they tasted so familiar. Thanks Richard for sharing your recipe!

    I love this cookie, an Italian cookie tray would not be complete without these! To change things up, we would put grated orange rind in half of the batter and then use a little orange juice in place of the milk in the glaze~ OH and the different sprinkles were a must also! (but I think that was just for the benefit of us grandkids!) Thanks for posting this Richard!
