rounds. Place on greased baking sheets. pierce 1 round all over with a
fork to prevent it from rising unevenly during cooking. Bake 8 to 10
minutes or until golden brown. While still warm, cut round which was
pierced with a fork into 12 equal portions. Cool on a rack with other
round. To Make Filling: Put milk, sugar, salt, lemon peel and egg yolk into
