    verbena's Note:

    A delightful cookie, moist on the inside and crisp on the outside. They have a nice bright, lemon flavor with a little crunch from the poppy seeds. You don't have to use the most expensive olive oil, but do use a good flavored extra virgin one. For my vegan friends, this recipe can be easily made without any eggs (see instructions in the recipe).

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cookies

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 375°F.
    2. 2
      In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, poppy seeds, salt, and 1/3 cup sugar) and whisk together.
    3. 3
      In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs (or egg substitute) with the olive oil, lemon juice, and lemon rind.
    4. 4
      Use a rubber spatula to stir the liquid mixture into the dry one, just until well combined; if the mixture is a little dry, add a little more lemon juice.
    5. 5
      Put a few tablespoons of sugar in a flat dish.
    6. 6
      Pinch off pieces of dough (about the size of a rounded teaspoon) and roll gently into balls. Put balls into sugar and press down slightly to make a thick disk.
    7. 7
      Place sugared cookie disk onto a lightly oiled cookie sheet and bake 12 to 15 minutes, or until lightly browned.
    8. 8
      Cool a couple of minutes on the cookie sheet, then remove the cookies to a rack to cool further.
    9. 9
      Note: Instead of eggs, use 2 tablespoons of ground flax seeds (i.e., flax meal) simmered in 6 tablespoons of water for a few minutes until thick and the consistency of raw eggs.

      very nice cookie-thank you. I was out of butter or marg (and out of cookies too :) so wanted a fast recipe with oil, this was a good choice and will definitely make again, I think I slightly overbaked, ( I loved the caramel that is created on the baking sheet and had to be eaten as I removed the cookies...) Thank you for posting.
