 Ingredients List

  • 1 c Butter or margarine;
  • -unsalted
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 c White sugar
  • 1 3/4 c All-purpose flour
  • 1 ts Vanilla extract
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 2 c Almonds; sliced


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla
and beat until smooth.

Sift together the flour and salt and slowly add to butter mixture. Mix
until just blended.

Divide batter in half and place each half on in the center of two
ungreased, flat-sided cookie sheets.

Dip a spatula in warm water and spread batter to cover the entire baking
sheet, making sure batter is spread evenly. Sprinkle almonds and press
gently into dough.

Bake each sheet about 12 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned.
Remove from oven.

Cut hot cookies into neat 2-inch squares. Return to oven and bake until
lightly golden... about 5 minutes. Watch carefully to prevent overbaking.

Remove from oven to a wire rack. Slide spatula under cookies to loosen.
Cool completely on cookie sheets. Store in airtight containers with layers
of wax paper between layers.

Makes 6 dozen

Notes: Thin and delicate, these are perfect for everything from formal
parties to your morning coffee.
