  • Summary

    Of all the cookies that grace Christine Albano's table at Christmas, the lemon ring-shaped ones -- ciambelle, in Italian -- are the most popular. Balance is key: Lemon zest is added to the buttery base, and lemon juice enlivens the nonpareil-flecked glaze. "We serve a big pile, and they're gone by the end of the meal."

    Ingredients

    • 3 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for surface
    • 1 tablespoon baking powder
    • 1 1/4 teaspoons coarse salt
    • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
    • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
    • 8 ounces (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
    • 3 large eggs
    • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
    • 3 cups confectioners' sugar
    • 7 to 8 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (from 4 lemons)
    • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons white nonpareils, for sprinkling
