cup butter or margarine
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 tsp milk
1/2 cup sliced almonds

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in egg and vanilla extract. Mix flour, baking soda, and cinnamon seperately. Add to creamed butter and sugar until combined. Spread dough into foil lined 13x9 inch baking pan. Brush top with milk and sprinkle with almond. Press almonds into dough. Bake at 350 degree pre-heated oven for 15 - 18 minutes or until golden. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting into squares. Makes about 36 squares.
If you are going to mold the cookies then ensure that the molds are chilled, oil and flour them lightly to start and then flour lightly after each use. Scraps and trimmings should be refigerated and used all together at the end.
