INGREDIENTS

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

DIRECTIONS

  • Cream together the butter, sugar, and egg. Beat until light and fluffy. Stir in the liqueur and almonds.
  • 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.
  • 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.).
  • Makes 6 to 7 dozen petite cookies.
