. . . Cookie Time Tuesday-Lemon Ricotta Cookies . . .

Yesterday was the first full day of Spring and these cookies just make me think of spring because of their pretty color and refreshing taste.  They are super easy because they are from a cake mix.  It is hard to eat just one!  They almost have a cake like consistency when they are baked but they are so soft and moist.

1/2 Stick Butter Melted (I use Margarine)
