    eggs

    carton ricotta cheese

    tsp vanilla

Directions

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in ricotta and vanilla. Combine flour, salt and baking soda: gradually add to creamed mixture. Drop by rounded teaspoons 2" apart onto greased baking sheets. (I used parchment paper.) Bake at 350 degrees for 10 min or until lightly browned. Remove to wire wracks to cool. In a mixing bowl, cream butter, sugar and vanilla. Add enough milk or half/half until frosting reaches spreading consistency. Frost cooled cookies and immediately decorate with sprinkles. Store in refrigerator. These freeze well. Makes 6 dozen bookies.
