Squeeze the juice from the lemon and grate the zest. Add everything to the dough and beat again with a mixer.
Then add corn starch, but you can take potato and just take a little less then, since corn is not so pronounced and has a more neutral taste. Pour the flour, but not all at once, the amount will depend on the juiciness of the lemon and the size of the egg. Knead the dough so that it is not too thick.
Tear off small balls from the finished dough, roll it a little in your hands and lay it out at a distance on a parchment covered with parchment.
Press each ball slightly with your hand or the bottom of the mug, then bake in a preheated oven to 180 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
