Makes 36 cookies

These are yummy, nut-crusted, buttery almond bars.

  • 1 egg, separated
  • 3/4 tsp almond extract
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 tsp cardamom
  • 2 cup flour
  • 1 cup almonds, finely chopped


1. Preheat oven to 275.
2. Lightly grease a 10x15 jelly roll pan (9x13 cake pan will do).
3. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter, sugar and salt together until light and fluffy.
4. Beat in egg yolk and extracts.
5. Stir in cardamom.
6. Stir in flour 1/2 cup at a time, blending well after each addition.

12. Immediately use a sharp knife to cut into 40 "fingers" (4 across, 10 down).
13. Cool 15 minutes in pan on rack.
14. Carefully remove from pan --- cookies are fragile.
15. Cool completely on racks.
16. Keep in airtight container one week, freeze three months if well-wrapped.
