  3. Stir in eggs, oil, lemon juice and zest until well blended.

  4. Form dough into small balls about a tablespoon, and drop into a bowl of confectioners’ sugar.

  5. Roll them around until they’re lightly covered. Once sugared, place on a lightly-greased cookie sheet.

  6. Bake for 6 to 9 minutes in the preheated oven. The bottoms will be light brown, and the insides chewy.

  • You can also prepare the sugared balls of dough on the cookie sheet, and just refrigerate the sheet for about ten minutes for a similar effect.
