Number of Servings: 30

1 1/2 Teaspoon(s) Unsalted butter
3/4 Cup(s) Slivered almonds
1 1/2 Tablespoon(s) Amaretto liquor
1 Cup(s) Flour, all-purpose
1 Pinch(s) Salt
1/2 Cup(s) Unsalted butter, room temp.
1/2 Cup(s) Sugar
1 Egg, room temperature
Powdered sugar, optional
For almonds: Melt butter in heavy small skillet over medium heat. Add
almonds and amaretto and stir until almonds are golden brown, about 5
minutes. Cool on paper towels. For dough: Preheat oven to
350-degrees. Lightly grease 2 large baking sheets. Sift 1 cup flour
with salt into small bowl. Using electric mixer, cream butter with
1/2 cup sugar in large bowl until light and fluffy. Blend in egg and
amaretto. Add flour and mix until dough binds. (Dough will be
sticky.) Divide dough into 30 pieces. Roll each between palms into
balls, dusting hands with flour if necessary. Set on baking sheets,
spacing 2 inches apart. Fill small bowl with water. Mound sugar on
plate. Dip bottom of 2-1/2" round glass into water and then into
sugar. Press glass down onto 1 dough ball, flattening into 2-1/2- to
3-inch round. Repeat with remaining dough. Sprinkle rounds lightly
with sugar. Gently press several glazed almond slivers into each round
in flower pattern. Bake until edges of cookies are golden brown, 8 to
10 minutes. Cool on rack. Just before serving, dust cookies with
powdered sugar if desired. Source: Bon Appetit magazine, date unknown.
