Ingredients for 4 people


7 oz Italian "00" flour or all-purpose flour

Using a spoon, cream the sugar and butter.

Once you have a grainy dough, add the eggs and grated lemon peel.

Continue kneading the dough, gradually incorporating the sifted flour and a pinch of salt.

Knead the dough until smooth and uniform. Add more flour if the dough is too sticky.
