This simple snack takes only minutes to prep if you have the lemon zested already!

Tip: When you use fresh lemons, don’t forget to zest them first. Freeze the zest on ice cube trays, and you’ll have “fresh” zest any time you need it for cooking or baking. Just break the “cubes” into a ziplock bag after freezing. 1 cube equals approximately 2 tablespoons, and they defrost quickly or are easy to break up by hand or with a knife.

Recipe Tip

Keep an eye on this in the last 5 minutes of baking. Oven temperatures vary from oven to oven. You don’t want these to burn in the last few minutes. They should simply have a nice, golden-brown look to them when they are done.

      Sure! Just be sure it’s in liquid form.

  2. Jessica Sumego says:

    Do you need to soak the almonds first?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Jessica – I did not. But you can if you prefer. Not sure if it will change things though.
