DIRECTIONS

  • In a large bowl, cream together butter and 3/4 cup sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in egg yolks and almond extract.
  • Add salt. Sift in 2-1/2 cups flour. Mix. Add just enough additional flour to make a pliable dough. (Or see variation in description above.) Chill for 30 minutes.
  • To shape, divide dough into 6 equal portions. Roll out each to make a rope about 24 inches long.
  • Cut dough into 2-inch strips. Place on cookie sheets. Brush with egg white. Sprinkle with almonds and remaining sugar.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for about 10 minutes until cookies feel firm and are lightly browned around the edges. Let cool on cookie sheets for a few minutes. Remove to wire rack and cool completely.
