Preheat oven to 350F.
Add almonds to food processor/high speed blender and process until a fine meal forms.
Pour almond meal into a bowl and combine with the rest of the ingredients. You can adjust the amount of lemon zest depending on your taste. I also added a squeeze of lemon.
Use a tablespoon to scoop the dough and roll into balls. Place on a lined baking sheet and use a fork to gently press down the cookies.
Bake for about 12 – 15 minutes until the cookies have started to turn golden.
