These buttery little cookies are flavored with the citrusy flavor of Bergamot essence or extract. If you cannot find Begamot essence, you can use the zest of 1 orange, 1 lemon, and 1 lime, very finely chopped and added to the batter when the egg yolks are added.

I’m sorry about the European measurements. These recipes are copied straight from my notes in my individual production pastry class. If you would like to convert the measurements, i recommended using this conversions calculator: southernfood.about.com/...blconv.htm
