Preparation steps

1.

Preheat the oven to 170°C (approximately 350°F) convection. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

For the cookies: In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter with the sugar until white and creamy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix together the flour, ground almonds, baking powder, salt and lemon zest. Alternately stir the flour mixture and the milk into the butter-egg mixture, beginning an ending with the flour mixture.

With a spoon, drop 24 mounds of batter onto the baking sheets, spacing them a few inches apart. Sprinkle with slivered almonds and bake until set, 10-12 minutes. Remove from the oven, lift the baking paper from the tray and transfer to a wire rack to cool.

2.

For the filling: With a hand mixer, beat the cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth. Whip the cream with the vanilla sugar until stiff and fold into the cream cheese. Spoon the cream into a piping bag with a star tip and pipe the filling onto the flat side of half the cookies. Top with a matching counterpart, rounded side up.
