Mandelschnitten and doughnuts

Mandelschnitten is a popular German almond cookie, with a lot of different variations. In researching it I did not find any others that called for Citron. I also realized I don’t know what Citron is. The doughnut recipe seems deliciously simple and so if you can’t find Citron I suggest starting with that.




1/2 lb chopped Almonds
1/2  " Citron
4 Eggs
1 lb of Powder Sugar
2 or 3 teaspoons Cinnamon
2  " "     "     Cloves

1 tablespoon butter (even full)
1 cup sugar
