DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, poppy seeds, salt, and 1/3 cup sugar) and whisk together.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs (or egg substitute) with the olive oil, lemon juice, and lemon rind.
  • 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.
  • Put a few tablespoons of sugar in a flat dish.
  • 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.
  • Place sugared cookie disk onto a lightly oiled cookie sheet and bake 12 to 15 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  • Cool a couple of minutes on the cookie sheet, then remove the cookies to a rack to cool further.
  • 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.
