1 cup
3/4 cup
5 large
1 tablespoon
1/2 cup
1/4 cup
1 tablespoon
Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°F / 180°C / Gas Mark 4

- Bring a small pot of water to a boil.

In a mixing bowl, mix the ground almonds, caster sugar, 4 egg whites, and lemon rind. Place the bowl in the pot of boiling water. Stir the mixture continuously for about 15 minutes to form a sticky dough. Remove from heat and cool.

When you can handle the dough, knead it for about 5 minutes. Form a roll and cut about 24 pieces.

Shape each piece into crescent shapes and brush with the remaining egg white. Scatter the almond flakes over each crescent and gently press the flakes in so that they stick to the cookies.

Place crescents on a greased baking tray and bake in a preheated 350°F oven for about 15 minutes.

Mix the sugar and water. Brush the cookies with this glaze and bake for an additional 5 minutes.

Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack.
