1 teaspoon water

1 (4-ounce) package whole blanched almonds


How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine butter, 2/3 cup sugar, egg, almond extract and salt in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour; beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed.

    Divide dough in half. Wrap each in plastic food wrap; flatten slightly. Refrigerate 1-2 hours or until firm.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  4. STEP 4

    Roll out dough, one-half at a time, on well-floured surface (keeping remaining dough refrigerated) to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut into diamond shapes using cookie cutter or knife. Place 1/2 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.

  5. STEP 5

    Beat egg white and water in bowl with whisk. Brush over tops of cookies. Place whole almond in center of each cookie; sprinkle with sugar. Bake 10-12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Let stand 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets.
