When I was young, I could hardly wait for the holidays because I knew these rich cookies would make an appearance on the cookie tray. Now I make them for holidays throughout the year. —Fred Grover, Lake Havasu City, Arizona

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature, separated
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • TOPPING:
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup finely chopped almonds
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolks. Gradually add flour and mix well.
  2. Using a cookie press fitted with a bar disk, press dough 1 in. apart into long strips onto ungreased baking sheets. In a small bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; brush over dough.
  3. Combine topping ingredients; sprinkle over strips. Cut each strip into 2-in. pieces (there is no need to separate the pieces).
  4. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until edges are firm (do not brown). Cut into pieces again if necessary. Remove to wire racks to cool.
