Step 1

Preheat oven to 350'.

Step 2

Stir cream and sugar together well. An even heavier cream is preferred by some.

Step 3

Stir in the almonds, orange peel, and flour.

Step 4

Spread a cookie sheet with unsalted shortening, flour it lightly, and drop the batter on it from a teaspoon, keeping each cookie well apart from the others.

Step 5

Bake until golden brown--10-15 minutes. These need careful watching as they burn easily.

Step 6

When they have cooled on a rack, spread the bottoms of the cookies with the melted chocolate. Use a spatula or spear the cookie on a fork and dip it into the chocolate.

Step 7

Dry on wax paper, bottoms up. Cookies will be very thin.
