Ground Walnuts can be substituted for ground Almonds.

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

Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness. Use a round 2-inch cookie cutter to cut out circles. Cut out an inner circle with a smaller round cookie cutter.

Bake circles and rings until light golden, 12 to 15 minutes. Transfer to wire rack to cool. Spread a small amount of strawberry jam 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 (Optional).
