These easy ricotta cheese cookies are great for cookie exchange, dessert or snack! They are soft and moist on the inside but crispy on the outside!

I LOVEEEE ricotta cheese and I used to think that it can only be used in savory recipes but these ricotta cheese cookies proved me wrong.

It’s the BEST ingredient to use in desserts.

It adds so much MOISTURE and RICHNESS to your baked goods.

A few of you know that I am ALWAYS tweaking my chocolate chip cookie recipe but after adding a bit of ricotta cheese into my recipe, I don’t think I will be changing anything any more…heheh.

They are probably the SOFTEST cookies I have ever made!

Normally, I am biased towards crispy cookies but I have made an EXCEPTION here coz these are so darn good….lol!

There’s almost a “CAKEY” feel to them.

I only added chocolate chips in this batch but you try other add-ins like nuts and different flavors of baking chips.
