Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

2 3/4 cups flour
1 cup sugar
½ tsp baking soda
1 cup butter (2 sticks)
½ tsp salt
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 tsp almond extract
1/3 cup sliced or whole almonds


Mix first 5 ingredients together in a bowl.

Cut in butter until mixture looks like cornmeal.

Add egg and almond extract. Mix well.

Roll out 1/4" thick and cut with a 2" round cookie cutter -–OR–- make into 1" balls and flatten each slightly with a glass dipped in flour.

Place cookies on ungreased cookie sheet about 1" apart. They will not spread much.

Brush with beaten egg white and top with a whole almond or three slices.

Bake at 325 for approx. 15 minutes. Do not let them brown.
