Yield: 30 Servings
|½ cup||Butter or margarine, softened|
|1½ tablespoon||Coffee liqueur*|
|2¼ cup||All-purpose flour|
|1½ teaspoon||Baking powder|
|1 can||Whole almonds (6-ounce)|
Combine butter and sugar in a large bowl; beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs, beating well. Mix in liqueur. Combine flour and the next three ingredients; add to butter mixture, beating well. Stir in almonds. Divide dough in half; shape each portion into a 9x2-inch log on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 350F for 30 minutes or until firm. Cool on baking sheet 5 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool completely. Cut each log diagonally into ½-inch thick slices with a serrated knife using a gentle sawing motion. Place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350F 5-7 minutes. Turn cookies over, and bake 5-7 minutes longer. Remove to wire racks to cool.
NOTES : * 1½ tablespoons chocolate syrup may be substituted for the liqueur.
