Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) Roll pastry carefully in both directions until about 1/4-inch (7 millimeters) thick, cut in circles about 3-inches (75 millimeters) in diameter and allow to rest. Mix cheese, sugar, lemon rind, and almonds, then add egg and mix until combined. Press pastry into mini muffin pans. It is important that it is thin on the base and thick on the sides. Fill about 2/3 full with mixture and bake for about 25 minutes, or until golden brown.
