- 1 cup cold butter
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 2/3 cup sugar, divided
- 1 cup ground almonds
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- In a large bowl, cut butter in flour until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. With a fork, stir in sour cream until blended. Divide dough in half; shape each half into a ball and flatten. Wrap tightly and freeze for 20 minutes.
- Sprinkle 1/3 cup sugar on a lightly floured surface; roll each portion of dough into a 12-in. square. Combine the almonds, cinnamon and remaining sugar; sprinkle over dough. Using a rolling pin, press nut mixture into dough. Cut into 1-in. strips; cut each strip widthwise into thirds.
- Place 1 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 400° for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool. Yield: 6 dozen.

Although these were quite tasty, I didn't find that the almond taste came thru. They were crispy and tasted good however
