 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      cup           ground blanched almonds
      1/2  cup           sugar
      1/2  cup           minced candied orange peel
    1      cup           all-purpose flour -- sifted
    6      tbsp          milk -- (6 to 8)
      1/2  cup           semi-sweet chocolate pieces -- melted
 
 Put the ground almonds in a bowl with the sugar, orange peel and all but 1 
 tbsp of the flour.  Mix well, then stire in enough milk to give a smooth, 
 firm dough.
 
 Roll into small balls and place, well apart, on a  baking shet lined with 
 greased wax paper.  Sprinkle with the remaining flour, and bake in a 
 preheated moderate oven 350 degrees, for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
 
 Transfer to a wire rack to cool.  When cold, sandwich the cookies together 
 in pairs with the melted chocolate.   Chill in the fridge for1 hour before 
 serving.
