admin's picture
Ingredients
  Soft sweet butter 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Granulated sugar 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Egg whites 2
  All purpose flour 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Blanched almonds 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs), roughly ground in blender
  Lemon extract 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Lemon 1 , rind grated
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).
2. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or oil lightly.
3. In a bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and flurry. Add egg whites and beat for a few seconds.
4. Fold in flour, then fold in ground almonds, lemon extract and lemon rind.
5. Drop batter by teaspoonfuls at least 4 inches (10 cm) apart on prepared baking sheets. With the back of a spoon, spread into 3-inch (7-cm) circles.
6. Bake in oven for 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned around edges.
7. With a long spatula, remove cookies immediately and drape them over a rolling pin to form a curved shape. If cookies harden before you can remove them all from the cookie sheet, return them to the oven for a few seconds, and they will soften again. Store in an airtight container.
