- 6 oz butter
- 12 oz granulated sugar
- 3 eggs, + 1 egg yolk
- ⅛ oz salt
- ⅛ oz vanilla powder
- ⅛ oz nutmeg , ground
- ⅛ oz baking powder
- 1 lb all-purpose flour
- ½ lb almonds
Soften the butter at room temperature for at least 45 minutes. Beat the butter and the granulated sugar in a bowl until creamy.
Add eggs and keep beating.
Mix the flour with the baking powder. Stir in nutmeg and vanilla sugar.
Add almonds and mix until smooth.
Fill a pastry bag with the mixture and make lines of dough (like little baguettes) on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake in a preheated 400°F oven for 15 - 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool slightly. With a knife, cut diagonally into 1/2-inch slices. Return to the oven for a few minutes until crunchy on both sides.
