• 1 lb butter

  • 3/4 c sugar

  • 1 egg yolk, well beaten

  • 1/2 c grated almonds

  • 1 tsp almond extract

Cream butter and gradually add sugar. Mix in egg, almonds, extract and finally the flour. Chill dough in refrigerator. Force through a cookie press on to ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees. Watch carefully so cookies do not brown too much.
