2 teaspoons vanilla
2 large eggs
4 cups flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

ICING:
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350F. In large bowl, with mixer at low speed, beat sugar and butter until blended. Increase speed to high; beat until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.

At medium speed, beat in ricotta, vanilla, and eggs until well combined. Reduce speed to low.

Drop dough by level tablespoons, about 2 inches apart; onto ungreased large cookie sheet.

When cookies are cool, prepare icing. In small bowl, stir icing sugar and milk until smooth. With small spreader, spread icing on cookies; place a candied cherry piece on top of each cookie. Makes 6 dozen cookies. These freeze well.
