  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup slivered almonds, toasted and chopped
  • Bittersweet chocolate, melted (optional)


  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the sugar, butter, orange peel and eggs. Stir in the flour, baking powder, salt and almonds.
  3. Shape half of the dough at a time into 10 x 3 inch rectangles and set onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 20 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool on the cookie sheet for 15 minutes.
  4. Cut the dough crosswise into 1/2-inch slices and place each slice, cut sides down, on a cookie sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes longer or until golden brown and crispy.
  5. Cool on wire racks. Top with melted bittersweet chocolate, if desired.
