Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 14 cup almond liqueur (Amaretto di Saronno)
  • 1 cup almonds, finely ground
  • 3 cups flour
  • 14 teaspoon salt


  1. Cream together the butter, sugar, and egg. Beat until light and fluffy. Stir in the liqueur and almonds.
  2. Mix the flour and salt and gradually add these to the creamed mixture. Form the dough into (2) 10-inch logs. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours.
  3. Cut the logs into 1/4" slices and bake in a 350° oven until lightly browned, about 10 minutes. (The alcohol dissipates but leaves that wonderful amaretto flavor.).
