Key Lime Ricotta Cookies are sweet and sour. The perfect cookie to see summer in!
I love to make lasagna. And although my recipe for The Easiest Lasagna Ever can be made with either ricotta or cottage cheese, it really does taste better with ricotta. Our local grocery store only carries one size of whole milk ricotta, and that’s 30 ounces. So since I only need half of it to make lasagna, I’m always wondering what to do with the other half.
I was looking through Pinterest at ricotta pancake recipes, when I saw several lemon ricotta cookie recipes. But of course I didn’t have any lemons on hand, so I decided to try my hand at Key Lime Ricotta Cookies instead.
Having never had ricotta cookies at all, I wasn’t sure what to expect. They turned out with a similar taste to sugar cookies, but a lighter, less dense texture. They’re quite good. The cookies alone aren’t very sweet, but the key lime glaze really adds a pop of sweet and sour to them!
