Home Sweet Home Bakealong 37: Lemon & Ricotta Cookies

July 26, 2015

On the cakier end of the cookie spectrum, I really liked these zesty little lumps.

I did wonder if I had mis-read the recipe though as it said “about 2 tbsp dough per cookie” which would have made them huge and definitely not have given you 18-20 of them. I checked (since my track record on reading tbsp/tsp isn’t great) but it was definitely printed as tbsp. I’m pretty sure it’s a typo. I used one tbsp and got 12 good lumps of cookie. Delicious, but took 20mins too cook not 15. Other than that I can’t fault them and they are a nice change to the standard choc chip chewy biscuit type of thing. A summer cookie rather than a winter dunker, I think.
