Here is a delicious recipe we tried last week.
1 1/2 cups sifted flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
Sift flour and baking powder, work in butter, add sugar and knead; mix until thoroughly blended. Do not add any liquid, as this would entirely change the texture.
Roll out half an inch thick, cut into rounds with fluted cutter, place on flat baking sheet and press one or two almonds in each.
Bake in slow oven (325F-350F) about half an hour. If preferred, the mixture may be pressed into a baking pan dotted with almonds and after baking cut into squares.
