Light and flavorful soft cookies with a cake-like texture, these chocolate and orange ricotta cookies are a crowd pleaser.
Preheat the oven to 375F.
In the large bowl combine the butter and 1 cup of sugar and mix until light and fluffy slowly adding the remaining cup of sugar.
When all the sugar is incorporated, add the eggs, 1 at a time, mixing well. Add the ricotta cheese, orange juice, and orange zest. Mix to combine.
In a separate bowl sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Slowly, 1/2 cup at a time, add to the creamy mixture. Mix until combined.
With a spatula fold in the chocolate chips.
Drop spoonfuls of cookie batter on baking sheets covered with parchment paper and bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes depending on their size. The cookies will have slightly golden edges.
