    This is a popular Ukrainian tea dainty.

    1 cup butter
    1 cup sugar
    Grated rind and juice of 1/2 lemon
    2 egg yolks
    5 hard cooked egg yolks
    1/2 cup almonds, blanched and ground
    2 1/2 cups sifted flour
    1 egg white
    Chopped almonds and sugar

    Cream the butter with the sugar and lemon rind until light. Add the egg yolks, one at a time, and beat well.

    Press the hard cooked egg yolks through a sieve and add to the creamed mixture along with the lemon juice. Stir in the nuts, and then the flour; mix thoroughly.

    Break off small pieces of dough, roll into finger lengths of pencil thickness, and shape them into rings.

    Dip each ring into a slightly beaten egg white and then into the almon-sugar mixture.

    Place the rings on a greased baking sheet and bake them in a moderate oven (350 degrees F.) for 15 minutes, or until delicately browned.
