Makes about 72

1 cup butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 egg white, slightly beaten
Extra granulated sugar (or cinnamon sugar)
72 blanched almonds

Beat together butter and sugars until creamy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Blend in dry ingredients. Regrigerate about 1 hour or until firm. Pre-heat oven to 350 F. Shape dough into 1-inch balls and place on ungreased baking sheets. Flatten slightly with the bottom of a glass covered with a damp cloth. Brush the top of the cookies with the egg white and sprinkle with the extra granulated sugar or cinnamon sugar. Bake about 12 minutes. Let cool for one minute then remove to wire racks to cool.

Note: From an old (undated, but looks to be in the 1960s) promotional pamphlet entitled "Electric Holiday Cookbook".

Would make this again.
This recipe sounded like those almond cookies they give you at Chinese restaurants... but it is so much better! There's no reference to when to put the almonds on the cookies so I put one on top before I put on the egg white. I only cooked for 9 minutes and they came out perfect! Great recipe! 5 stars
