Ricotta Cookies

Saturday, November 12, 2011

First I have thought this cookies wouldn't baked nicely because there were too many problems while I was making it. First I forgot to add flour!! Can you believe I didn't add flour into a cookie :)) Yea I did... After I noticed it's liquid and added flour back and shape them again; while I was baking it first I forgot to open the oven :)) Anyhow it ended great... :)) I got this recipe from Turkish Cookbook.


250 gr Ricotta Cheese, unsalted, wrap into two layers of paper towel and keep it at room temperature for 30 minutes
1 cup powdered sugar
4 tbsp (1/4 cup) butter, unsalted, at room temperature
1 egg, at room temperature
Zest of half lemon
1 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cup flour, all purpose


Egg white
Sesame seeds

Cream the powdered sugar with butter. Add the egg yolk and lemon zest. Add the ricotta cheese, mix. Then slowly add the flour and baking powder. Make sure everything's mixed. Do not kneed, just combine! Cover with plastic wrap and keep in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Make 16 chestnut sized balls with your hands. First dip (only one side) in the egg white then in the sesame seeds. Repeat for the remaining dough. Place parchment paper on an oven tray and arrange them on it.

Preheat the oven to 350 F (180 C) and bake for about 15-20 minutes or until the tops take a beige color.

Makes 16 Turkish Ricotta Cookies.

Bon Appétit.
