    Star Almond Crunchies

    Almond Crunchies

    1/2 cup Crisco All Vegetable Shortening, or 1/2 Crisco stick
    2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    Almond Topping:
    1/4 cup Crisco All Vegetable Shortening, or 1/4 Crisco stick
    1 cup unblanched almonds, finely chopped
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/2 cup whipping cream
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Preheat oven to 375°F.
    Cream 1/2 cup Crisco with lemon peel and 1/2 cup sugar. Combine flour and salt; add in halves, mixing until blended after each addition.
    Turn dough into an 11 x 7 x 1-1/2-inch pan and press into an even layer.
    Bake at 375°F for 12 minutes.
    Meanwhile, for Almond Topping, melt 1/4 cup Crisco in a heavy saucepan. Add almonds and sugar. Stir in cream and heat to boiling; cool slightly. Stir in vanilla extract. Pour almond mixture over partially baked layer.
    Continue baking for 20 minutes or until light golden.
    Cool completely. Cut into bars or squares.
