Ricotta Cookies

Susan's Note:
A wonderful parent (Mrs. M) made these for our staff for Teacher Appreciation week and they are addictive! Just out of this world. These are "cakey" cookies, so do not store them mixed with crispy cookies or the crispy cookies will get soggy.

2 cups of granulated sugar
1 cup of butter softened
1 (15 oz) ricotta cheese ( I use part skim)
