Recipes

Meyer Lemon, Ricotta and Rosemary Cookies

Chef Janis Frey for Relish Culinary School

Makes approx. 4 dozen

 

2 sticks       unsalted butter, softened

2 cups        sugar

2                eggs

15 oz          whole milk ricotta

3 Tbsp        Meyer lemon zest

2 Tbsp     Meyer lemon juice

tsp.         rosemary, fresh, finely chopped

2 cups     flour

1 tsp           baking powder

1 tsp           salt

                  rosemary leaves for garnish

 

Glaze

6 Tbsp        unsalted butter, softened

3 cups        powdered sugar

4 Tbsp        Meyer lemon juice

 

Preheat oven to 350F.  In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Add eggs, one at a time and mix until incorporated.  Then add ricotta, lemon zest, lemon juice and rosemary and blend well.

 

In a medium bowl sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the dry mixture to the butter mixture in two additions, blending to combine.

 

Drop by tablespoons onto parchment-covered sheet pans.  Space at least 2-inches apart because the batter will spread.  Bake for 13 to 15 minutes until the edges are light brown.  Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool.

 

While the cookies are cooling, prepare the glaze by creaming butter and sugar together.  Gradually add the lemon juice, using more or less to get the desired consistency.  Add a small amount of glaze to each cooled cookie, and a rosemary leaf if desired.

 

Served with the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition sweepstake winning red wine:  Navarro Vineyards, 2005 Anderson Valley Late Harvest Muscat Blanc.
