We got this recipe from Aneh in a gluten-free cooking class we took in 2005. Peg finally had a chance to try it out.

If you are making this recipe for a gluten-free guest, please read our Guide to Gluten Cross Contamination.


Ingredients

2 eggs
1 1/3 cup of powdered sugar
3 1/2 cups Almond Meal (Bob's Red Mill)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon grated lemon rind (about 1/2 lemon)
1/2 teaspoon GF vanilla (Penzey's!)

Directions

In a mixer beat eggs and sugar
In a separate bowl combine almond meal, baking powder and lemon rind
Add eggs and mix to form soft dough
With oiled hands roll rough into small balls about the size of a walnut.
Flatten out balls in powdered sugar. Flatten some thing smooth (glass, plate, etc)
Bake at 350 for 10-15 min. or until GBD (Golden, Brown & Delicious).

These taste as good as they look!
