    1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
    1 cup sugar
    1 egg
    1/2 tsp. almond extract
    1 1/2 cups flour
    2 tsp. baking powder
    1/4 tsp. salt
    1/2 cup slice almonds (unsalted)
    2 Tbsp. milk


1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

2. In a medium bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add egg and almond extract; mix until fluffy. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt; mix well.

3. Divide dough into 4 pieces, and roll each one into a log about 12 inches long. Place 2 logs per cookie sheet, 4 to 5 inches apart. Flatten each roll by hand until it is about 3 inches wide. Brush flattened roll with milk and sprinkle with sliced almonds.
