I saw a picture of these cookies today on Pinterest and when I tracked down the original blog post it had the recipe, in Russian.
Not in Swedish or something.
I figured between the power of Google and me, I could figure out the recipe. I haven't made these yet, but they look easy.
Warning: I used Google to translate from Russian, made some corrections and then retyped the instructions to make more sense. Use at your own risk. Many of the ingredients are still measured in grams because there is no accurate way to translate that into cups. Use a kitchen scale, it's better to bake that way anyway.
Russian Lemon Wedge Cookies (from http://liliach.livejournal.com, translated by me)
150g softened butter
1 tbsp lemon zest
200g ground almonds
100g caster sugar (superfine sugar)
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 egg yolk
sugar for sprinkling
Beat butter with an egg.
Add almonds, sugar, flour and lemon juice and stir.
Shape into two rolls, about 5cm (2") each in diameter and put into the refrigerator for 3 hours.
Heat oven to 180C (350F).
Slice each log into cookies about 4 mm (1/8") and place on a baking sheet. Brush the top of each cookie with the beaten egg yolk.
Wash the lemons thoroughly under hot water and wipe with a towel. Cut into very thin slices of 1-2 mm and put one slice on the top of each cookie. Sprinkle with sugar and bake for 12-15 minutes.
Cool and optionally sprinkle with powdered sugar.
If you like the tops of the cookies browned, the last 5 minutes of baking, put under the broiler.
