Let's Make It
Heat oven to 350°F.
Combine flour and baking soda. Beat butter, granulated sugar, dry pudding mix and lemon zest in large bowl with mixer until blended. Add ricotta and eggs; mix well. Gradually add flour mixture, mixing well after each addition.
Roll dough into 82 (1-inch) balls. Place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheets.
Bake 12 to 14 min. or until edges are lightly browned. Cool 5 min. on baking sheets. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
Whisk powdered sugar and lemon juice in medium bowl until blended. Dip tops of cookies halfway into glaze; return, dipped sides up, to wire racks. Immediately top with some of the sprinkles. Repeat with remaining cookies. Let stand until glaze is firm.
