- 200g of ground almonds
- 150g of sugar
- 1 egg
- Zest of 1 lemon
- Pine nuts or walnuts (optional, for decoration)
- 1 beaten egg (for brushing)
- Parchment paper
In a large bowl, combine the ground almonds, sugar, lemon zest, and the egg. Mix well until you have a homogeneous dough.
Cover the dough with plastic wrap and let it rest in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F) and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
After resting, take small portions of the dough and shape them into walnut-sized balls.
If desired, you can decorate the panellets with pine nuts or walnuts by gently pressing them onto the top of each ball.
Place the panellets on the baking tray, making sure to leave a little space between them.
Brush each panellet with beaten egg, which will give them a beautiful golden color when baked.
Bake the panellets in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until they are golden brown.
Remove from the oven and allow them to cool before serving.
Enjoy these delicious panellets, a traditional sweet treat perfect for any special occasion or holiday!
