Print Recipe



  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup lard
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 large orange
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups finely ground almonds


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease a baking sheet.
  2. In bowl, beat the butter, lard and sugar to a smooth light cream. Add the egg yolks separately, beating well after each.
  3. Very finely grate the orange peel and add the batter with the juice of the orange, then fold in the flour and the almonds. The dough should be quite crumbly.
  4. On a floured surface, roll out the dough 3/4 inch thick. Cut out 1 1/4 inch circles. Place on prepared baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes, until cooked but still golden. They will still feel soft but will grow firm as they cool.
  5. Store in an airtight container.

Makes about 36.
