    Chinese Almond Cookies

    Ingredients:
    2 3/4 cups sifted all-purpose flour
    1 cup granulated sugar
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 cup (2 sticks/8 oz/226g) butter, margarine, or lard, softened
    1 large egg, slightly beaten
    1 teaspoon almond extract
    1/3 cup whole almonds, blanched

    Instructions:
    Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (160 C).

    Sift flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl. Cut in softened buter until mixture resembles cornmeal. Add beaten egg, and almond extract, mix well.

    Shape dough into 1-inch balls and place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookies sheets. Place an almond on top of each cookie and press down to flaten slightly. Bake in slow oven (325F/160C) for 15-18 minutes. Cool on rack.

    Makes approximately 4 1/2 dozen cookies.
