    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375°F.
    2. 2
      Put the hard cooked egg yolks through a wire sieve. (To do this easily, press them through with your fingers). Add the raw egg yolks and mix well.
    3. 3
      In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar; add the egg mixture and mix thoroughly. Stir in the flour, cardamon, and lemon zest; blend well. Chill dough for 1 hour.
    4. 4
      Roll out small portions of the dough at a time on a lightly floured board to 1/8" thickness. Cut with a 2 1/2" cookie cutter. Brush with egg white, then sprinkle the tops with the sugar and almond mixture.
    5. 5
      Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
    6. 6
      Bake for about 10 minutes, or until delicately browned.

      Good cookies- they taste wonderful and look fine, literally. I cut them into heart shape and got a little over eager with the sugar-almond mixture ;) Had problems rolling out the dough, because it cracked much, so I pressed most of it down by hand... wish it were a bit more moist and easier to handle, but Iove German recipes in general!
