Finnish Shortbread Joyce Schwarm
2 cups butter 1 cup sugar
4 cups flour Pinch salt
Ground almonds (about 1 cup)
Sift flour, sugar and salt together. Add butter and knead like bread or pie crust until it forms into ball. Roll into slender rolls, like a pencil, and flatten with palms of your hands. Cut crosswise in 2 inch lengths. Brush cookies lightly with egg white. Sprinkle the sugar and almonds on top of egg white. Bake at 375-400 until slightly brown. (I also used a little cinnamon on top).
