Greek Christmas Cracker Cookies

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at A nice and easy holiday cookie to make. No rolling, cutting, frosting...just cool and break into chunks and dip into coffee, tea or brandy! So delicious.

1 cup almonds or hazelnuts, ground
2 2/3 cup unbleached all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon brandy

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grind the nuts finely and combine with flour, sugar, salt and zest. Cut in the cold butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle with lemon juice and brandy, mixing only until blended as the mixture should be crumbly. Lightly oil a 9 by 13 inch baking pan and spread the mixture into it without pressing it down. Bake 50 minutes, or until nicely browned. Let cool completely and when cooled break into chunks. It is best to let it cool several hours or overnight before breaking into chunks.
