Chocolate Chip Cookies w/ Toasted Walnuts & Ricotta

WARNING! The next few recipes are only for those who have self control (as in, this won’t be the only food they eat until they are all gone ~cough~). I’ve been trying to space out my posts so you don’t get too many one day and none for a few days but I need to close tabs in my browser (and not see these recipes taunting me).
