Directions

  1. Cream the butter,lemon peel and suger until light and fluffy.
  2. Add the vanilla and flour, mix well. Mix in the almond meal.
  3. Chill the dough for one hour.
  4. Shape dough into 48 little logs and flatten slightly. You can freeze the cookies at this point.
  5. When ready to bake: dip each log into egg white, then roll in the flaked almonds. You will probably have to squeeze the log in your fist to get the almonds. I recommend getting both hand in there, you can wash up once they are formed.
  6. Place the logs close together on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  7. Bake at 325 degrees F for 15 to 20 minutes until a light golden brown.
  8. Sift powdered sugar over the cookies while they are still warm.
