Why I Love This Recipe

These are my absolute favorite cookie. My mother and my aunt Patty make dozens of cookies for trays at Christmas, like every good Italian lady! I snatch all of these from the trays and leave the rest!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
1/2 c. vegetable oil
2 Tbls. cold water
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 1/2 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
10 oz. slivered almonds
6 oz. chopped almonds


Beat first 5 ingredients, set aside

Sift cinnamon, flour, and, powder.

Mix both batches together by hand and fold in almonds.

Make 3 small loaves and place each on a greased baking sheet

Mix 2 tsp. water and one egg white and rub over top of loaves, sprinkle with sugar

Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes

Cool for about 10 minutes and slice into 1/2 inch pieces.

*You can make the loaves ahead and keep refrigerated for two days!
