Chocolate Chip Ricotta Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 stick unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 8 oz. ricotta cheese
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • kosher salt
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips, or more to taste
  • confectioner’s sugar for dusting
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment.
  2. Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl with a handheld mixer on high until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Reduce speed to medium and add eggs. Beat until smooth. Add ricotta and vanilla and beat to combine.
  3. Sift flour and baking powder into bowl. Add a pinch of salt. Mix on low speed until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips by hand.
  4. Drop cookies in heaping tablespoons onto baking sheets. Leave about 2 inches between cookies. Bake, rotating the trays from top to bottom halfway through, until cookies are puffed and golden at the edges, about 18 minutes. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
  5. Dust cookies with confectioner’s sugar before serving if desired.

I got this recipe from the newspaper! A lady named Lidia Bastianich.

I had to take these out right at 18 minutes. Any longer and the bottoms started browning. I also thought the suggested amount of mini chocolate chips was perfect.
