Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 8

3/4 Cup(s) Sugar
2 Cup(s) Pecans, coarsely ground
1 Tablespoon(s) On, lemon rind
1 Tablespoon(s) On, lemon juice
2 Tablespoon(s) Ons, matzo meal
1 Egg yolk
1/3 Cup(s) Lemon Juice
1 Teaspoon(s) Unsalted butter or margarine
For the torte: Whisk together the egg yolks and the sugar in a large
bowl until blended. Stir in the pecans and the lemon rind. In a
separate bowl beat the egg whites and the lemon juice until the whites
are stiff, but not until dry peaks form. Stir one fourth of the whites
into the yolk mixture. Gently fold in the remaining whites until
blended. Scrape into a greased 9 inch springform pan that has been
dusted with matzah meal. Bake in a preheated 325 degree oven for 1
hour or until firm to the touch in the center. Cool in the pan on a
wire rack for 15 minutes. The cake may sink in the center. For the
glaze: Meanwhile, prepare the glaze. Combine the egg yolk, lemon
juice, sugar; and butter or margarine in a small saucepan. Bring to
simmering over medium heat, whisking constantly. Remove from the heat.
Stir in the lemon rind. Poke holes in the top of the cake with long
skewers so that the glaze can soak in. With the cake still in the
springform pan, spoon the glaze over. Let the cake stand a few minutes
until the glaze seeps into the cake. Then remove the cake from the pan
by running a thin knife around the rim to release the cake. Garnish
with lemon rind, if you wish. Per serving (excluding unknown items):
