Lemon Ricotta Cookies

Lemon Ricotta Cookies are the perfect companion to your morning coffee. They are also perfect during any season, their soft and fluffy texture is reminiscent of a muffin top. Loaded with juicy blueberries and tons of lemon zest. These Lemon Ricotta Cookies are incredibly easy to make, and you can dress them up or down. I personally prefer a touch of lemon icing on mine, while my husband and son prefer theirs loaded with icing and covered in coconut, which reminds me of a fluffy snowball.

Fresh lemon juice, vanilla extract and fresh lemon zest are added to the cookies for an outstanding fresh flavor. The juicy blueberries, burst with  juice and complement the citrusy flavor. These cookies are perfect for those who prefer a soft and flavorful bite. Tall, soft and fluffy these cookies are delicious served with milk, hot tea or coffee.

  • Lastly, they are easily transportable.

How to make lemon zest?

Follow the easy steps below:

  • First, rinse the lemon.
  • Then, set your tool over a cutting board. A microplane produces a very fine zest, so perfect for baking and cooking. If you don’t have a microplane, use the smallest holes on an ordinary grater.
  • After, grate the yellow skin of the lemon only. Grate just enough to get through the yellow skin, this way you can avoid the bitter white pith underneath.
  • Rotate the lemon and repeat. Once the white pith is exposed, rotate the lemon and zest the next strip of peel. Repeat until most of the peel is removed, or until you have enough zest for your recipe.

How long will Lemon Ricotta Cookies stay fresh?

The Cookies can be stored wrapped in plastic wrap at room temperature for about 5-7 days. Hence, don’t be afraid of keeping them for few extra days.

Can you store and freeze Lemon Ricotta Cookies?

Absolutely! Cool the cookies completely and fully wrap it in plastic wrap, tightly. After that wrap in aluminum foil. Freeze for up to 2-3 months. Defrost before serving.

Blueberries, lemon, & ricotta are such a fabulous combo! These cookies look perfect! :)



Those cookies are just beautiful! I bet they'd be a big hit at a cookie exchange. Do you think you can freeze them to keep longer?
