Preparation steps

1.
For Cookie Dough:
2.
In a large bowl, with clean hands, mix together ground almonds, beaten eggs, lemon extract, sugar, flour and salt. Divide the dough into two equal portions. Roll each portion into logs about 1 1/2-inches in diameter. Wrap in plastic or waxed paper and chill in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours or until firm.
3.
Preheat oven to 325º F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
4.
Cut chilled logs into slices about 1/8-inch thick and place on prepared baking sheets. Bake for about 8 minutes or until edges are slightly golden. Allow to cool on wire racks.
5.
Put a dollop of jelly on the bottom of half of the cookies and sandwich two cookies together.
6.
For Glaze:
7.
Combine confectioners' sugar and lemon juice or liqueur together one tablespoon at a time, until a smooth, spreadable consistency is achieved. Drizzle or spread glaze over each sandwich cookie top. Garnish with chopped candied fruit. Serve.
