How to make it
- Place flour on board, making a well in the center.
- Place eggs, egg yolk, shortening, sugar, salt and lemon peel into the well.
- Mix well, working the dough with your hands.
- Shape into very small balls, the size of marbles.
- Let the dough balls rest about 15-20 minutes, covered with damp paper towels, while you heat the oil in a deep stock pot.
- Drop the balls, a few at a time into the hot oil (350 degrees) until golden brown.
- They'll float, just turn them around a bit for even browning.
- Melt honey in a saucepan and add orange zest.
- As soon as the balls are fried, take them from the oil directly to the honey pot.
- Let them float around in there for about 30 seconds.
- Lift them out of the honey with a slotted spoon, placing them on a serving platter, piling them into a conical shape.
- Sprinkle with non-pareils while the honey is still warm.
