As a child, we referred to these cookies as pizzarelle dolci (sweet little pizzas). 

These cookies are easy to make with simple ingredients.

4 eggs
1 cup of olive oil
1 cup of sugar, additional sugar for sprinkling
4 teaspoon baking powder
4 cups of all purpose flour
1 lemon (juice and zest)

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.
