My Favorite Butter Cookies

So what's better than a cup of tea?  Well, cookies to go with the tea, of course!  Here's a wonderful recipe from one of my favorite books, "If Teacups Could Talk" by Emilie Barnes.

When was the last time you had a friend over? (Probably a long time since this is written a year after pandemic started!)  So invite your family that you live with, or have a socially distanced get together with a dear friend, and serve these cookies with a pot of your favorite tea!

2 sticks unsalted sweet butter (softened)

1 cup sugar

1 egg, separated

1 1/2 tablespoons Amaretto or

1/2 teaspoon almond extract

2 teaspoons grated orange zet

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 cups of flour

3/4 cups sliced almonds

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy (about 3 minutes).  Add egg yolk, amaretto or extract, orange zest,  and salt; beat well.  Stir in flour and blend well.  Spread and pat the dough evenly into a 10 x 15 inch jellyroll pan.  Beat egg whites until foamy and brush evenly over the dough.  Sprinkle almonds over top.  Bake 40 minutes or until light golden brown.  Cut into 2-inch squares while still warm.
