"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and lightly flour madeleine pans or cupcake pans. In top of double boiler, over hot, not boiling water, with electric mixer at medium speed, beat eggs and granulated sugar until mixture heats to lukewarm - about 2 minutes. Set top of double boiler in cold water. Beat egg mixture at high speed, 5 minutes, or until very light and fluffy. With rubber scraper, gently fold in flour until well combined. Stir in cooled butter and lemon peel just until blended. Pour into prepared pans, using 1 Tbsp. batter for each cookie. Bake 12-15 minutes, or until golden. Cool 1 minute. Then remove from pans with small spatula; cool completely on wire racks. Then sprinkle with confectioner's sugar.
