Step 1: Combine flour, sugar, lemon peel, and salt together.
Step 2: Place flour mixture on a board and make a well in the center.
Step 3: Add eggs, egg yolk, and oil. Mix and work dough well.
Step 4: Shape dough into very small balls about the size of marbles, and fry in 2 cups of hot oil until golden. Fry only a few at a time.
