Step 4: Shape Sugar
While the mixture is still hot pull or cut pieces off (with buttered kitchen scissors) and roll them in your hands to form a sphere or egg shape. Be careful not to burn your hands. The mixture should feel hot but not hot enough to burn your skin. If it is, wait for it to cool some.
Since the mixture is hot the lemon drops will ultimately be flattened on one side. Or at least mine were!
Roll the formed lemon drops in powdered sugar to coat. This way they will not all stick to each other!
Tip - If you find that the sugar is hardening too quickly to shape the pieces put them in the preheated oven (on warm) to reheat the sugar. You will be able to shape them again once they soften a bit.
I hope you enjoy these as much as I did!
