1 cup butter softened
2 cups flour
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup blanched, sliced almonds
1 egg, separated
1-2 Tbls sugar
1 tsp almond extract
1/4 tsp cinnamon

Beat butter and sugar until fluffy and light.
Add egg yolk and almond extract. Stir in flour.
Spread dough onto ungreased 15 x 10 x 1 inch jelly roll pan.
Beat egg white until foamy and spread evenly on dough. Spread nuts on top.
Combine sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over nuts.
Bake at 350 for 25 minute or until light brown.
Let cool for 10 minutes.
CUT WHILE STILL WARM into diamond shapes.
