-------- ------------ --------------------------------
8 ounces butter -- softened
1 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg -- separated
1 1/2 tablespoons Amaretto
2 teaspoons orange rind -- finely grated
2 cups flour
3/4 cup almonds -- sliced

Preheat oven to 300 degrees and get out a 10 x 15 inch jelly roll pan.

Combine butter and sugar in a mixing bowl and beat until smooth. Add the salt, egg yolk, Amaretto, and orange rind, and beat until blended. Stir in the flour and blend thoroughly. Spread and pat the dough evenly over the bottom of the ungreased pan.

Beat the egg white just until foamy, spread it evenly over the dough, then sprinkle the almonds over all. Bake for about 45 minutes or until lightly golden. Remove from oven and cut into 2 inch squares while still warm.

Yield: 40 squares.
