Ingredients
  • 6 eggs
  • 3 cups fine sugar
  • Peel of one lemon
  • 2 tbs almond extract
  • 1 cup sifted white all purpose flour
  • 7 cups ground almonds (with or without peel)

Directions
1 In a bowl break eggs, add sugar and beat with an electric mixer until golden in colour.

2 Add the lemon peel and almond extract. Combine baking powder, white flour and ground almond and add to egg mixture.

3 Using a small spoon scoop portions of equal size, roll in fine sugar and place two inches apart on a parchment lined cookie sheet.

4 Bake in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes, cool on pan before removing.

Makes about 50 cookies (depending on the size you make).

Tip: You can either ground the almonds with or without the peel. Using peeled almonds will give you a lighter cookie.
