I baked these this afternoon. If I'd realized how easy they are to make, I'd have done so before now. The dough is really stiff and crumbly, but the warmth of your hands makes it hold together when you shape it out on the cookie sheet. I probably should have let them cool a little longer before slicing them between bakings, but in the end, they came out fine.
The only part that was kind of a pain was that I didn't have slivered almonds, so I had to soak the whole salted ones I had in warm water for a few minutes, then peel and sliver them by hand, but it wasn't that big a deal.
