  • Finely chop lemon peel and crystallized ginger and gently mix them into the dough.
  • Chill dough until firm.
  • Form into 1 inch balls and roll in sparking sugar until evenly coated. Place balls 2 inches apart onto parchment lined cookie sheet.
  • Bake 11-15 minutes until cookies are slightly puffed. Yield: 3 dozen cookies.
