Chanukah Frying Pan Cookies


6 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
1 cups granulated sugar
Grated peel of 1 lemon
1 teaspoon salt
4 eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


Cream butter and 1 cup sugar in bowl until light and fluffy. Add lemon peel and salt. Beat in eggs one at a time. Sift together flour and baking powder in separate bowl. Fold into butter mixture to make dough.

Heat enough oil for frying in deep frying pan to 360 degrees F.

Shape dough into small balls and drop about 8 at a time into hot oil. Fry 3 minutes. Turn with slotted spoon and let dough fry until golden brown, 2 to 3 more minutes. Lift out cookies with slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.

Combine remaining ¼ cup sugar and cinnamon then sprinkle on the cookies while they are still warm.
