  • 1 1/2 lbs. all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 lb. sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tbsp. Brandy
  • 1/4 lb. blanched and ground almonds
  • 1/8 c. chopped citron (about 2 tbsp.)


In a mixing bowl, combine butter, flour, and sugar, egg yolks, Brandy, almonds, and citron. Roll the cookies out on a lightly floured board to 1/4-inch thickness.
