recipe is accurate without flour made pasties, quietly gets dough and it pretty good. me personally I liked the result, and use lemon to normal size.

We did them and got pretty good. I think in this recipe 1 cup has a capacity of 250 ml. I began with 1 cup with a capacity of 200 ml and need to add more nuts and powdered sugar. According to the size of a lemon and egg may need to use more dry ingredients. Surprising but testing can be sharpening - is as much dough nuts, sugar and lemon juice can - at least we were able to narezhem squares. Bake at razkriviha and became the most beautiful, but it can because the mixture was wetter. I liked very much the icing - just like meringue is browned, while Paul said they were tasty without it :) Overall we are satisfied with the result, really are very tasty.

How many pastries were received? A photo will you?

About 20-something pastries (more precisely is sweet, I would call them lemon macaroons) came out.

I am glad that you have tried and you liked. Thanks for the pictures :)

Oh, very appetizing picture! Will roll up their sleeves in May!
