Yield: 4 dozen cookies


  • 2/3 cup unblanched almonds, ground
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 unbeaten egg yolk
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Mix 2 tablespoons of ground almonds with 2 tablespoons sugar; reserve.
  3. Combine remaining ground almonds with flour, salt and sugar.
  4. Cut in butter until particles are fine.
  5. Add unbeaten egg yolk and almond extract; mix well to form a dough. Divide into 2 portions. Roll each portion with floured hands on a lightly floured surface to a strip 12 inches long. Place six strips side by side. Brush tops generously with slightly beaten egg white; sprinkle with reserved almond sugar mixture. Cut across all six strips at one time to make 1 1/2 inch pieces. Separate cut pieces of each strip and place on ungreased baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 14 to 18 minutes until light golden brown.
