Ricotta Cookies Recipe (With Sprinkles)

When I think of Italian American bakeries, I envision piles of biscotti, rainbow cookies, cannolis, and trays and trays of an array of cookies decorated with colorful sprinkles —including ricotta cookies. Super soft and cakey, thanks to the ricotta cheese, these cute little cookies remind me a bit of Lofthouse sugar cookies (which are often made with sour cream or yogurt). They aren’t too sweet, and the almond-flavored icing and sprinkles on the top turn them into a festive treat. Want proof of their deliciousness? The 80 ricotta cookies I brought to my daughter’s school playdate were devoured in mere minutes.
