- 1 cup butter, softened
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 cup blanched almond, ground
- 2 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted

- Roll out dough to one inch thickness. Cut into 1 inch pieces, and roll quickly and gently into a ball. Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. Bake for about 15 minutes.
