Ricotta Cheese Cookies

This much-loved cookie recipe is quick, easy, delicious, and pretty. You can't go wrong! I found this on Pinterest ! I love that website.

Makes about 100 if you scoop them small.

For the cookies:
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups granulated sugar
1 (15 ounce) container of ricotta cheese
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
4 cups all-purpose flour

For the glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
milk (Didn't give an exact amount so just add and mix slowly)

*Preheat oven to 350 F.
*Mix all of the cookie ingredients well until the dough sticks together into a big ball. It will be sticky.

*Drop by teaspoon fulls on an ungreased cookie sheet.

*Bake 10 minutes (*I found that it took quite a bit longer 15-20 min.) or until the bottoms turn golden brown.
Let cool for 1 minute and then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
*Remember they are suppose to be moist so don't freak out if it's soft in the center.

*In a small saucepan slowly stir milk into the powdered sugar until it creates a glaze thin enough to be spread over the cookies. Stir over low heat then spread over cooled cookies. *I didn't heat the milk. I just dumped it in after I pulled it out of the fridge*
*Quickly top with sprinkles.
