1/2 c. butter
1 c. white sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp. almond extract
1 3/4 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. sliced almonds
2 tbsp. milk

1 c. confectioners' sugar
1/4 tsp. almond extract
1/4 c. milk

In a medium bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add egg and almond extract; mix until fluffy. Stir in flour, baking powder, and salt; mix well.
Divide dough into 4 pieces, and roll each one into a log about 12 inches long. Place 2 logs per cookie sheet 4 to 5 inches apart. Flatten each roll by hand until it is about 3 inches wide. Brush flattened roll with milk and sprinkle with sliced almonds.
Bake in preheated oven 12 to 15 minutes or until edges are slightly browned. While the cookies are still warm, cut them crosswise at a diagonal, into slices about 1 inch wide. In a small bowl, stir together powdered sugar, almond extract and milk until smooth. Drizzle over the cool cookies.
