 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 c Margarine
  • 1/3 c Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 ts Grated lemon rind
  • 1 1/3 c All-purpose flour
  • 1/2 c Ground almonds or walnuts
  • Raspberry or strawbery jelly
  • Sugar


Preparation time: 20 minutes Chilling time: 30 minutes Baking time: 10 to
12 minutes per batch

1. Cream margarine and sugar in mixing bowl. Add egg, lemon juice and
lemon rind. Mix until smooth. Add flour and nuts. Wrap in plastic wrap and
flatten. Refrigerate dough 30 minutes.

2. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to
1/8-inch thickness. Use a round 2-inch cookie cutter to cut out circles
from dough. Cut out an inner circle with a smaller round cookie cutter from
half of the circles to make a "cookie ring."

3. Bake circles and rings until light golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer
to wire rack to cool. Spread a small amount of jelly on each whole circle.
Press a cookie ring on top of it. Shake the cookies one at a time in a bowl
of sugar to coat well. Store in a covered dish. Note: Confectioners' sugar
can be used to coat the cookies in place of granulated.
