Absolutely amazing…if I may say so myself!

I am so thankful to Kite Hill for inventing Vegan Ricotta. My Italian life is so much easier and happier!

These cookies are fairly simple to make and a little cookie is just the right amount to satisfy your sweet tooth…although it is hard to eat just one!

Enjoy!
