Freshly baked, tantalizing and fragrant lemon ricotta cookies are guaranteed to cheer you up. A powerful burst of citrus aromas and summer flavors to up your sugar level and lift your mood. These citrusy cookies are so easy to make and so hard to keep away from. They are like mouthfuls of tropical summer on your plate.

I adore citrus flavors: orange, tangerine, lemon, lime and mandarin. I love them all. The fresh smell is so alluring I can not get enough of it. I make everything lemon: muffins, jam, glaze. But these cookies are delightful. The dough is infused with potent lemon zest and lemon juice for the best possible lemon flavor. The taste is nicely balanced out nothing overwhelming and overly sweet, letting the citrus flavors shine through.

The cookies have delicate texture with cheesecake like flavor thanks to the ricotta cheese that makes the dough.

You can take these delicious treats to the nest level of deliciousness by glazing them with aromatic lemon glaze. They are great for any occasion and just wonderful with a cup of strong espresso or a latte. The melt in your mouth rays of sunshine are always a huge hit. And you get vitamin C as an added bonus.
