CULINARY ARTS: 3 Christmas cookies you can easily bake

Published: Thursday, December 13, 2012 at 10:42 AM.

½ cup chopped almonds

¼ cup chopped citron

1/8 teaspoon anise extract

Apricot brandy (the alcohol bakes out)

DIRECTIONS: Sift the flour and spices together. Beat the eggs until thick and add sugar a little at a time, beating continuously. Add the lemon zest, then coffee, alternating it with the flour mixture. Add the ground almonds and citron. Chill the dough for two hours.

Roll it into logs an inch in diameter, slice off half-inch pieces and set on a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Allow to stand overnight in a cool, dry place to dry out.

The next morning, preheat the oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
