As a child, we referred to these cookies as pizzarelle dolci (sweet little pizzas).
These cookies are easy to make with simple ingredients.
Preheat oven at 350.
Mix sugar and the olive oil.
Add the eggs.
Combine the flour and baking powder in a mixing bowl. Whisk to mix.
Gradually add the flour at a low speed; add the lemon juice and zest.
Mix at higher speed for 1 minute to make sure it is all mixed.
Grease a cookie sheet with olive oil or butter.
Drop a full tablespoon of batter for each cookie.
Sprinkle sugar over each cookie.
Bake at 350º for 20-25 minutes until golden. Remove from the oven and let cool.
