Almond Crisps With Amaretto-Glazed Almonds
Yield: 30 servings

1 1/2 tsp unsalted butter
3/4 cup slivered almonds
1 1/2 Tbsp amaretto

1 cup flour
1 pinch salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temp
1/2 cup sugar
1 small egg, room temperature
2 tsp amaretto liquor
1 sugar
1 powdered sugar, optional

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.

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.
