2 1/3 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter or real margarine ( not that spread stuff)
3/4 cup grated unblanched almonds
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup raspberry jelly
Granulated sugar for coating
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine flour, sugar and salt together into bowl;
cut in butter with pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Blend
in almonds and vanilla; work mixture with fingers until a ball of dough is
formed. Roll dough thin on floured surface; cut with small cutter. Place on
cookie sheets line with parchment paper. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 8 to 10 minutes.
While hot, spread half of the cookies with jelly; place another cookie on top to
form sandwich. Coat cookies with granulated sugar. Cool. Makes about 7 dozen.
