Almond Lace Wafers

Yield about 4 dozen


  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 2/3 cup sifted powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg white
  • Sliced almonds

How to Make It

  1. Cream butter in a medium mixing bowl; add sugar and almond extract, beating until light and fluffy. Gradually add flour, beating well.

  2. Beat egg white (at room temperature) in a small mixing bowl until stiff peaks form; gently fold into creamed mixture.

  3. Drop dough by heaping 1/2 teaspoonfuls 1 1/2 inches apart onto greased cookie sheets. Place an almond slice on top of each, and bake at 375° for 8 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Allow cookies to stand 1 minute on cookie sheets before transferring to wire racks to cool completely. Store cookies in airtight containers.
