ITALIAN RICOTTA COOKIES RECIPE - NYT COOKING
Jessica Hulett’s tender, cakey ricotta cookies taste like the white part of the best black and white cookie you've ever had. The recipe comes from Ms. Hulett’s grandmother Dorie, who used to flavor the cookies with anise, if she used flavoring at all. Adding lemon zest gives the cookies a fragrant brightness. We approve.

ITALIAN BAKERY COOKIES RECIPE | MOLLY YEH | FOOD NETWORK
These were some of my favorite cookies growing up — there were a bunch of amazing Italian bakeries outside of Chicago and I was always drawn to these cookies because of the sprinkles. But what really gets me is that soft layer of jam in the middle that makes the cookies a little bit chewy (and that splash of almond is irresistible as well).

  • Tip: To make uniformly sized cookies, use a ruler and a marker or pen to draw 2-inch lines on 2 sheets of parchment paper in a 3-by-4-inch grid. Flip the parchment over and place on 2 baking sheets so the marker side is down but you can still see the lines. Using the lines as a template, pipe the dough in 2-inch lines on the baking sheets, using a paring knife or shears, if needed, to cut the dough from the piping bag in straight edges.
