    DebS #2's Note:

    These little buttery crescents are filled with almond paste. They were an Easter tradition started by my grandmother and continued on, now for my family. The recipe was in my grandmothers heart - when she died we thought we lost the recipe until her neighbor lady gave it to her granddaughter - who gave it to me! So now it's back in the family and the tradition lives on!

      Although I don't usually go to this much work to make rolls, I actually found the whole process relaxing & enjoyable! After finely mincing the lemon zest, I followed this recipe right down the line & came away with a wonderful smell in the kitchen & a couple of great tasting rolls just devoured! Thanks for sharing your recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's PAC]
