Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars. Add eggs and extract; mix well. Add flour and baking powder (dough will be soft). Chill.
  2. For filling, stir egg white, sugar, ground almonds and lemon juice in a small bowl.
  3. Remove a portion of the dough at a time from the refrigerator. Place 1-inch balls of dough into miniature muffin cups, pressing slightly into sides and bottom. Place 1/2 tsp of filling into each. Cover with quarter-sized circles of dough. Brush with a little milk and top with an almond.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20--25 minutes or until golden.
