Add the baking powder and lemon zest... mix well.

Add the sugar and mix well.

Add the flour all at once and let it mix completely for a few minutes.

The mix will be rather soft.

Put a little flour in the palm of your hand.

Take a spoonful of dough and drap it in the palm over the flour. Put some flour in the palm of the other hand as well and  roll the dough into a ball. Drop it on the baking pan and flatten the ball with the palm of your hand.
