• 3/4 cup sifted confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup ground blanched almonds
  • 2-1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour


The less you handle this dough, the more delicate the finished cookie. 30 servings.

1 Cream together confectioner's sugar and butter. Add vanilla, cinnamon and almonds.
2 Knead in flour by hand until completely mixed.
3 Chill dough for about an hour.
4 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
5 Roll out dough to one inch thickness. Cut into 1 inch pieces, and roll quickly and gently into a ball. Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. Bake for about 15 minutes.
6 When baked, dip or roll in confectioner's sugar. Store airtight in layers with waxed paper in between.
