A sweet interlude
Chop the almonds until you get a flour. To the almond flour add the sugar and mix. Grate the lemon zest. Then add the egg white and mix until a soft and sticky dough is obtained.
In a pastry board sprinkle some icing sugar. With your hands take small balls and roll them in sugar. Put them in a plate with parchment paper and add an almond in the center by flattening the ball a little.
Bake in a static hot oven at 160/180 degrees for 15 minutes, adjust the cooking according to the size of the balls.
