      Beat egg whites and sugar with lemon peel and baking powder until
   smoothly blended.  With a heavy spoon, work the nuts in thoroughly, then
   the flour. Lightly flour your hands then pinch off tablespoon sized lumps
   of dough and shape like short sturdy bones. Place cookies on a greased
   baking sheet and bake in a 375 degree oven for 10-12 minutes or until pale
   brown.  Cool on wire racks.  Store airtight.
      NB: You don't have to shape them into bones, but it looks cute. Serving
   Ideas : Nice dunked into coffee or wine.
      NOTES : These biscuits are so called “bones to chew” because they are
   hard and pale. They are traditionally baked on All Soul’s Day in Italy.
