Ricotta Cheese Cookies
At medium speed, beat in ricotta, vanilla, and eggs until well combined. Reduce speed to low.
Add flour, baking powder, and salt; beat until dough forms.
Drop dough by level tablespoons, about 2 inches apart; onto ungreased large cookie sheet.
Bake about 15 minutes or until cookies are very lightly golden (cookies will be soft) With spatula, remove cookies to wire rack to cool. Repeat with remaining dough.
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.
