Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and baking soda; set aside
In a large mixing bowl, using a handheld electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter, sugar, eggs, ricotta, and vanilla extract. Gradually beat in the flour mixture.
Using a small cookie scoop, scoop the dough and then roll to form balls. Arrange on prepared baking sheets 1 inch apart.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 8-10 minutes or until lightly golden.
Meanwhile, while cookies are baking, whisk together milk, confectioners' sugar, and almond extract until smooth.
Dip the cookies in glaze while they're still warm. Set on a wire rack and cool completely. Dip the cookies in glaze a second time and decorate with candy sprinkles, jimmies, or colored sugar. Set on a wire rack and let glaze set.
