Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

250 Gram(s) Ground almonds
200 Gram(s) Castor sugar
4 Egg whites
1 Lemon, grated rind of
1 Egg white
100 Gram(s) Flaked almonds
50 Gram(s) Granulated Sugar
1 Tablespoon(s) Water
('Female Magazine' Cookbook) Directions: In a mixing bowl, mix the
ground almonds with the sugar, egg whites, and lemon rind. Place the
bowl in a saucepan filled with boiling water. Stir the mixture
continuously for about 15 mins to form a sticky dough. Cool and chill.
Knead the dough, form a roll and cut about 2 dozen pieces. Shape into
cresents and brush with egg whites. Scatter the almond flakes over
each cresent and gently press the flakes in so that they stick to the
cookies. Place cresents on a greased baking tray and bake in a
moderately heated oven (sorry this is what the book says! - maybe 350
deg F?) for about 20 minutes. Mix the sugar and water and simmer for a
while. Brush the cookies with this glaze 5 minutes before the end of
baking time. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack. Posted to
