1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 to 2 tablespoons milk
Heat oven to 350°F.
Combine sugar and butter in bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add ricotta cheese, egg and 1/2 teaspoon almond extract; continue beating until well mixed. Gradually add flour, baking powder and salt, beating at low speed after each addition.
Drop dough by teaspoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on cookie sheets 2 minutes; remove to cooling racks.
