If Santa's elves grew citrus trees, these sparkling lemony bites would surely be among the branches. Sugared dough balls should be chilled before baking for 30 minutes or frozen 5 to 10 minutes to preserve their round shape. Keep chilled after baking.A few suggestions - These are great with lemon extract added to the dough - in addition to the vanilla. They are also good with oranges and orange juice. I have heard it suggested but have not tried - lemon curd instead of buttercream and peppermint sprinkles with chocolate filling. Recipe Source: Gourment Mag
