Step 1: Beat grated almond paste, sugar, butter, egg, lemon zest and juice until mixture is light and fluffy.
Step 2: Sift flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into almond mixture. Mix until well blended. Wrap dough in plastic wrap (or plastic baggie) and refrigerate 1 hour or up to 5 days.
Step 3: Heat oven to 350F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Step 4: Shape dough into 1" balls then roll each ball in powdered sugar.
Step 5: Bake 10-12 minutes or until puffed and lightly browned around edges. I took my first batch out after 10 minutes, but that was too soon. The second batch baked for 12 minutes, and that was better. Cool cookies on sheet, then store in container, using wax paper to separate layers.
