Angel's notes for this recipe:
These crunchy nut-sized cookies for All Soul's Day may get their name "sweet fava beans) - from being shaped just like the beans of the dead, but that doesn't mean that each tiny bite isn't full of almonds, spices, & the slight intoxication of rum

Directions

1
Grind the almonds to a coarse powder in a nut grinder and then pestle them with the sugar, or grind the nuts with 2 TBL of the sugar in a food processor fitted with the steel blade.
2
Transfer to a large bowl & mix in the lemon zest, egg, & rum; mix until blended. Add the spices and flour and stir until the dough is well blended
3
Divide the dough into 4 pieces, Flour a work surface very lightly & roll each piece into a log the width of a finger. cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces and flatten them slightly. Place 1 inch apart on oiled or parchment-lined baking sheets.
4

How much almonds are to be used? The 1 listed in the recipe doesn't fit with the information in the instructions.
