My father got this from Kathy Ferguson and wanted me to make them for him! I agree, odd, for my father to bring an odd recipe! But these are really good!
15 oz container ricotta cheese
4 cups flour
1 tsp soda
2 cups sugar
1/2 lb margarine (I can't remember if I used butter or margarine)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
Cream margarine and sugar for 5 minutes. Add eggs and cheese and mix. Mix dry ingredients, add and mix only until moistened. Drop by teaspoonful onto cookie sheets.
Bake at 350 about 15 minutes, until set, not brown.
I got like 4-5 dozen cookies, I think. I'll have to count next time.
