    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cookies

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a large bowl, with a mixer on medium speed, beat 1 cup butter and sugar until smooth.
    2. 2
      Add egg yolk, liqueur, and orange peel and beat until well blended.
    3. 3
      In another bowl, mix 2 cups flour, baking powder, and salt.
    4. 4
      Add to butter mixture; stir to mix, then beat until well blended.
    5. 5
      Gather dough into a ball, divide in half, and flatten each portion into a disk; wrap each tightly in plastic wrap and freeze until firm enough to roll without sticking, about 30 minutes.
    6. 6
      Unwrap dough.
    7. 7
      On a lightly floured surface, with a floured rolling pin, roll one disk at a time to about 1/4 inch thick.
    8. 8
      With a floured, 2-inch round cutter, cut out cookies.
    9. 9
      Place about 2 inches apart on buttered 12- by 15-inch baking sheets.
    10. 10
      Gather excess dough into a ball, reroll, and cut out remaining cookies.
    11. 11
      In a small bowl, beat egg white with 1 teaspoon water to blend.
    12. 12
      Brush cookies with mixture and sprinkle or arrange about 1/2 teaspoon sliced almonds on each.
    13. 13
      Bake cookies in a 325° regular or convection oven until lightly browned, about 15 minutes; if baking two sheets at once in one oven, switch their positions halfway through cooking.
    14. 14
      Let cookies cool on sheets for 5 minutes, then use a wide spatula to transfer to racks to cool completely.
