A popular Swedish pastry, the mazarin is an almond sponge baked in a buttery crust. We’ve flavored the filling liberally with lemon juice and rind. (Orange or lime would work well too.) Once cooled, the mazarins are given a light coating of sugar glaze, which dries into an opaque coating. More dressed up than a cookie, these little tartlets are perfect afternoon snacks. We also like to top them with fresh apple or plum slices or fresh berries. They make festive tartlets for any occasion and freeze beautifully to have on hand when needed.
