      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.
