DIRECTIONS

  • Sift together the flour, sugar, and baking soda.
  • Put the almond flour, butter, and salt into a second bowl and mix until the mixture resembles cornmeal, about 3 minutes if using food procesor with paddle attachment on medium speed.
  • Add the egg and almond extract and mix until well-incorporated.
  • Add the flour mixture. Mix just until no traces of flour remain.
  • Transfer the dough to a large sheet of plastic wrap, flatten into a 1-inch thick disc, cover tightly, and refrigerate until hard, at least 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 325°F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Form the dough into 1/2-inch balls and put on the baking sheets 1 inch apart. Use the palm of your hand to press the balls into 1-inch circles. Press slivered almonds into each cookie, decoratively arranging them.
  • Brush the tops of the cookies with the egg white, then bake until golden and crisp around the edges, 15 minutes.
  • Cool completely on the cookie sheet and serve or store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
