Glazed Lemon Ricotta Cookies

No Comments 11 May 2010

If  I hadn’t seen Giada make these delicious cookies on The Food Network, I would have never made this recipe. I thought it just sounded strange- a ricotta lemon cookie? But after I saw her make them I knew this recipe was a winner. So I got out my Kitchen Aid and started baking. And the cookies were fantastic. The ricotta cheese gave the cookie a fluffy inner texture, and the glaze with the lemon zest in it really looked very pretty.

Ingredients

Cookies:

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 (15-ounce) container whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 lemon, zested

Glaze:

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 lemon, zested

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Cookies:

In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

In the large bowl combine the butter and the sugar. Using an electric mixer beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating until incorporated. Add the ricotta cheese, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Beat to combine. Stir in the dry ingredients.

Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Spoon the dough (about 2 tablespoons for each cookie) onto the baking sheets. Bake for 15 minutes, until slightly golden at the edges. Remove from the oven and let the cookies rest on the baking sheet for 20 minutes.

Glaze:

Combine the powdered sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest in a small bowl and stir until smooth. Spoon about 1/2-teaspoon onto each cookie and use the back of the spoon to gently spread. Let the glaze harden for about 2 hours. When cookies are cool they can be frozen, but make sure glaze is fully hardened.

No Cheese Quiche with Leek and Onions

2 Comments 11 May 2010

The vidalia onions in this recipe gives the dish a slightly sweet taste. The missing cheese makes this recipe low fat, but no one will even miss the cheese- so don’t even tell them!

Ingredients:

Two Bunches Leek (About Six-Eight Stalks), light green and whites only, cleaned thoroughly and roughly chopped

Two Vidalia Onions, chopped

Six to Eight  large eggs ( I use about 3-4 yellows and the rest whites)

Salt to Taste

Large Pyrex Dish sprayed with Pam

In a large pot, saute onions and leeks in very little oil on a high flame.  Saute mixture until it begins to wilt and leeks soften (about 5-6 minutes).  Do not brown. If there is excess water in the pot drain it.

Season leek and onion mixture with salt. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary before mixing in the eggs.

Mix eggs with leek and onions and pour in greased pyrex dish.

Bake on 350 until mixture is solid.
