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 if you don’t have access to Follow Your Heart VeganEgg, substitute 1/2 cup applesauce mixed with 1 tsp. baking powder.

Enjoy!
