These simple cookies are flavored with almonds and lemon zest, then dipped in melted chocolate. If desired, dot vanilla candy on chocolate coating before it dries, and swirl for a marbled effect.

INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):


  • In a medium bowl beat butter on high for 30 seconds; add sugar and beat well. Stir in flour and beat well. Stir in almonds and lemon zest. Divide dough into thirds and chill, covered, for 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/4 inch in thickness. Cut with 2 1/2 inch cookie cutter. Place cookies 1 inch apart on a cookie sheet.
  • In a small bowl beat egg and water together; brush over cookies.
  • Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave chocolate until melted. Stir occasionally until chocolate is smooth. Dip half of each cookie into melted chocolate; place on wax paper to cool.
