You will need these ingredients:
1 cup of sugar
1 egg, separated
1 tsp. almond extract
2 cups of flour
1/2 cup toasted, sliced almonds
1 tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
Step 1: Beat butter and sugar until fluffy and light in a large bowl with electric mixer. Add egg
yolk and almond extract, blending thoroughly.
Step 2: Stir in flour, a little at a time.
Step 3: Place the almonds on an ungreased cookie sheet and toast in a 350 degree for 10 minutes. This brings out the flavor in the almonds.
Step 4: While the almonds are toasting, turn the dough out onto an ungreased, 15 x 10 x 1 jelly roll pan and using your fingers, spread it evenly to the edges of pan. Then use the spatula to smooth it out.
Step 5: Beat egg white until foamy white and then spread evenly over the unbaked cookie dough.
Step 6: Spread the nuts on top of the egg white, then combine the tablespoon of sugar and the cinnamon and sprinkle over the nuts.
Step 7: Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven; let cool in pan for 10 minutes.
Step 8: Cut into 6 lengthwise strips, then into diagonal cuts to form diamond shapes.
Step 9: Cool thoroughly in pan, then remove carefully with a metal spatula. Store in an airtight container.
Yum-m-m! Don't they look great? Enjoy!!
