Weigh and put on the pastry board the flour, butter and lard.
Rub well together, add the sugar, ground hazelnuts, 2 whole eggs, bicarbonate of soda, grated lemon rind and a pinch of cinnamon.
Knead together lightly, form into a loaf and keep in a cold place for one hour.
Roll out to pencil thickness; stamp out with different biscuit cutters to various shapes.
Put biscuits on a baking sheet, brush tops with beaten egg, sprinkle with coarsely chopped almonds, and bake in a moderate oven till biscuits are of a light golden colour.
Ground walnuts or almonds may be used instead of hazelnuts.
