    2                    Egg whites
    1 1/2   c            Hazelnuts -- finely ground
      3/4   c            Superfine sugar
    1                    Lemon’s peel -- finely grated
      1/2   ts           Ground cinnamon
   10                    Candied cherries -- quartered
 
   Preheat oven to 350 F (175 C).  Line several baking sheets with rice
   paper.  In a medium-size bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form.
   Very carefully fold hazelnuts, sugar, lemon peel and cinnamon into egg
   whites until mixture is smooth.  Spoon into a piping bag fitted with a
   3/4-inch-plain tip.  Pipe small circles, about 1-1/2 inches in diameter,
   onto prepared baking sheets, spacing well apart.  Place a cherry quarter
   in the center of each circle.  Bake 20 minutes or until very lightly
   browned.  Remove from oven; leave cookies on baking sheets until cool.
   When cool, remove cookies and peel paper off each one.
