  1. Stir togetherthe flour, sugar, ground almonds, cinnamon, lemon juice and rind.
  2. In a clean bowl, beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks but are not dry. Gently fold the flour and sugar mixture into the egg whites.
  3. Roll tablespoonfuls of the mixture into balls and place on the baking tray, allowing room for spreading. Set the tray aside uncovered for 6-8 hours.
  4. Before baking, dust these amaretti biscuits with a heavy layer of icing sugar.
