A. 3/4 to 1 c. granulated sugar
    4 c. all-purpose flour
    Grated nutmeg to taste
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1 tsp. baking soda
B. 4 lg eggs
    1 tsp. vanilla extract
    1/4 c. fresh lemon juice
C. 1 1/2 c. almonds, toasted and chopped
    Grated zest of 3 lemons (thin colored part of peel)
D. 1/2 c. flour
0. Preheat oven to 375F.
1. Combine (A) in food processor fitted with metal blade, or in electric mixer.
    Process, adding (B) until mixture forms a dough. Add ater if mixture is too
    dry and crumbly.
2. Add (C). Process, pulsing off and on, so texture is not destroyed.

    thirds or fourths and form log shapes. Place logs on an oiled cookie sheet

    mins.

    slices to cookie sheet, reduce temperature to 300F and bake until crisp,
    15-25 minutes longer. Turn oven off and leave cookies in the oven, with
    door ajar, another 15 minutes.
5. Ends may be dipped in melted milk chocolate or semisweet chocolate after
    baking.
6. Note: These can be prepared 2 weeks in advanced and stored in an airtight
    container or plastic bags, or they may be frozen for as long as 6 months.
    Thaw in the refrigerator 2 days, or at room temperature for a few hours.
