  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until smooth. Sift together the flour and salt and slowly stir into butter mixture until just blended.
  3. Divide batter in half and place each half on in the center of two ungreased, flat-sided cookie sheets. Dip a spatula in warm water and spread batter to cover the entire baking sheet, making sure batter is spread evenly. Sprinkle almonds and press gently into dough.
  4. Bake each sheet about 12 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned. Cut hot cookies into 2-inch squares. Return to oven and bake until lightly golden... about 5 minutes. Watch carefully to prevent over baking.
  5. Remove from oven to a wire rack. Slide spatula under cookies to loosen. Cool completely on cookie sheets. Store in airtight containers with waxed paper between layers.

I give this recipe 5 stars, even though I had trouble with it! I bought some almonds at Sam's Club, so wanted to find a terrific recipe to use them in. I could not get this batter to spread,...

My whole family loves these cookies, I have to make several batches at a time. I also love to give these away.

I found and made this recipe after tasting some purchased almond thins. The taste was delicious but preparation was tedious and half of the cookies stuck to the sheet so I ended up with Almond T...

I made a pecan variation of this recipe that I would have given 4 stars but didn't think I could because I changed it so much. First I added a little bit more sugar which not surprisingly made t...

I stumbled upon this recipe after a cookie search using almonds. I am at my mountain cabin and intended to get started on some holiday baking, but I didn't realize that I didn't have one of the...
