  • 2.7 ounces (80 ml) of lemon juice (approx 2 freshly squeezed lemons)

Meanwhile lay out parchment paper on a baking tray and preheat the oven to 355 degrees Fahrenheit/180 degrees Celsius. Form little balls out of the dough with a teaspoon and place them on the tray. Bake the cookies in the oven for 12 minutes. Let them rest on the baking tray until they have cooled down, because they might otherwise break.
