Ricotta Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ricotta Chocolate Chip Cookies are a long standing tradition in my house and I had a craving for a piece of home yesterday. ( I also got a cookie jar from a lovely secret redditor)  We got the recipe from a family friend when my sister and I were much younger, and have since made the recipe a part of our family. 

Now, the recipe that I made yesterday isn’t the exact one, but it came pretty damn close. My parents were driving home from Tallahassee and visiting my sister up at college and my Mom didn’t know the recipe by heart in order to relay the details. So, I found this one simply by googling and picked one that seemed appealing to me.  

4 c. flour
1 lb. Ricotta cheese
3 eggs
1/2 c. butter
1 3/4 c. sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 bag chocolate chips


Mix flour and baking soda. Mix and cream sugar and butter. Beat 3 eggs and add to sugar mixture. Add Ricotta cheese and then flour mixture. Add vanilla, then chips. Bake at 400 degrees 10 to 12 minutes.
Now, if you don’t want a massive amount of cookies I suggest not using 4 cups of flour, I ended up with 4 batches of pretty massive cookies. Good thing my lovely guy best friends were playing a show that night at a local bar and got to enjoy the bag of cookies I brought with me.
