I just made these with my Aunty. And it was a success. I love how they are soft and orangey. They were really easy to make and I loved doing it. We made them for Christmas and sprinkled white and gold sugar sprinkles on top of the glaze.

Ever since the orange blossoms began to dot the branches of the citrus trees that line the streets of our neighborhood and filled the air with their sweet orange sugar vanilla scent this year, I’ve been wanting to make these Orange Ricotta Cookies.
