DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • In a large bowl, with a wooden spoon, beat together the lard and butter.
  • Incorporate the sugar, egg yolk and lemon peel into the lard/butter mixture.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the cinnamon and flour; work into the lard mixture with your hands to form a smooth dough.
  • On a floured surface, roll the dough 1/4 inch thick and cut with a 3-inch scalloped cookie cutter (or other shape).
  • Arrange cookies on a greased or parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for about 10 minutes, or until golden.
  • Allow to cool briefly on the cookie sheet as they are delicate when warm.
  • When cool, coat with confectioner's sugar.
