  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in extract. Combine the flour and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Divide dough in half. Shape each into a disk; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm enough to roll.

Using a floured spatula, place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Brush with egg. Decorate with almonds to resemble sand dollars and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar.
  3. Bake 12-16 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Cool for 2 minutes before removing to wire racks. Yield: about 1-1/2 dozen.
