Place 2 logs per cookie sheet, 4 to 5 inches apart.

Flatten each roll by hand until it is about 3 inches wide.

Brush the flattened roll with milk

Sprinkle with the sliced almonds

Bake in the preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until the edges are slightly browned

While the cookies are still warm, cut them crosswise at a diagonal, into slices about 1 inch wide
