Lemon Ricotta Cookies

I realize that Valentine's Day is next week and that most recipes you might see this week will be red, white, pink, chocolate or a combination of the four. I didn't have Valentine's Day in mind when I made these sweet, delectable lemony cake-like cookies that will blow your mind away. So they aren't the typical V-day colors, but like I said, they will blow your mind away. So it's ok right?

Anyway, I had this incredible craving for lemons the weekend I made these...


I needed some freshness in my life, so I turned to Giada (of course) and found her recipe for Lemon Ricotta Cookies...


"Amen." That was the first word that came to mind when I bit into the cookie for the first time.


I ate three of these in about three minutes. The lemon isn't too overwhelming and the ricotta creates the cake-like consistency that I really love. I think cookies would be perfect for a wedding or baby shower. Or if you are like me, they are perfect when you just need some freshness in your life...

Oh, I sent a pic of the cookies to Giada via Twitter and here is what she said... :)
