This recipe was derived from my sister Nancy's friend Cristen Sirignano-Irving from Connecticut. Nancy had taken on this recipe and made it a part of her Easter tradition and the recipe has since traveled to Canada and has become a part of the family brunch. The kids especially love them, they have a sweet cream cheese frosting and a soft cakey texture that almost makes them cupcake-like. The oval egg shape and pastel-coloured icing make them a perfect treat for Easter.
Here's the recipe - Ricotta Cookies.
They're pretty fool proof to make and I know they'll be popular with anyone who has a sweet tooth so I recommend you try baking a batch, Easter or not!
