Ricotta Chocolate Chip Cookies
Makes 22-25 medium size cookies
1 cup whole-milk ricotta cheese
1/2 stick unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the ricotta cheese, butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar, whipping until well blended and slightly fluffy. Mix in the egg and vanilla.
To the wet mixture, add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt, mixing well to combine. To this mixture, add the three types of chocolate chips, again stirring until well blended.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in the freezer for 20 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Once chilled, use an ice cream scoop to place golf ball sized pieces of dough on baking sheets covered with parchment paper or cooking spray. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the edges are lightly browned.
