Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time 10-12


1 lb butter, room temperature
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 large egg, beaten
4 1/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup almonds, slivered, toasted

Heat oven 375°F degrees.

Cream together butter and sugar; add beaten egg.

Mix together flour & salt.

Using a wooden spoon stir flour into the creamed butter mixture.

Work in the nuts until evenly distributed.

Divide dough into 4 parts and roll each part into a sausage about 2-inches in diameter. Wrap in wax paper and refrigerate until firm.

Slice the dough into 1/4" slices and place 1" apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 10-12 minutes (bake in center of the oven) Do not let the cookies brown too much they should be the color of shortbread--pale golden.

Store in tins in the fridge or freezer.
