  • In a large bowl, cream the butter or margarine with a wooden spoon until soft, but not oily. Add the sugar, and continue beating until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg. Sift and add the flour. Add in the grated lemon rind and the almonds.

  • Form the mixture into three rolls, each about 1/5 inch wide. Cut these into 4 inch long pieces, and form them into 'S' shapes.

  • Place on baking trays. Bake for about 12 minutes, or until risen and pale brown. Cool for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack.

The dough is a bit dry but if you just work it with your hands it's okay. I loved them! I don't like really sweet stuff and these were perfect. I substituted 1/2 tsp of cinnamon in place of lemon zest (I didn't have any) and added 1 tsp of lemon juice. I know it sounds weird but with the cinnamon it just worked somehow. They tasted like cinnamon flavored animal crackers. Love them!! Read More

This is a very dry recipe.I had to form with my hands into a roll and ended up slicing it into 1/4 inch pieces.They didn't rise much either maybe it was my SR flour. They were barely sweet.This was more like a tea bisquit. Read More
