1  t  Cinnamon
1  tb  Toasted sesame seeds
1/2  c  Blanched toasted almonds
1 1/2  c  Sugar
9  c  Flour
1  lb  Lard
2  tb  Grated lemon rind
2    Eggs
1/4  c  Sugar

Place the cinnamon, sesame seeds & almonds in a food mill or blender & grind until fine. Pour the powdered mixture into a large bowl. Mix in the sugar & flour. Cut in lard with a pastry blender. Add lemon rind & mix well. Turn the dough onto a floured board & knead for 5 minutes. Divide dough in half. Line 2 baking sheets with waxed paper & roll out each piece of dough 1/2" thick on the baking sheets. Score the tops in 1*2" rectangles & bake for 20 minutes in 325 oven. Beat eggs, sugar & orange juice together. Liberally brush on top of cookies with the orange glaze. Bake for another 10 minutes. Cool slightly then break along the score lines. Cookies will keep for 2 weeks if stored in airtight tin.
