Almond Wafers

1 stick butter, softened
1/2 cup Sugar
Grated zest of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon Dark rum
2 Egg whites
1 cup Ground almonds
6 tablespoons Flour

Cream the softened butter and add the sugar in a stream. Continue beating until mixture whitens. Beat in the lemon zest and rum, then egg whites, one at a time, beating smooth between each addition. Mix the almonds and flour together and stir them into the batter by hand.

Pipe the batter on paper-lined pans in 1-inch mounds using a 1/2-inch plain tube.

Bake the cookies at 350 degrees about 12 to 15 minutes. Cool the cookies on the paper.
