Almond Biscuits

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup margarine or butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 tsp almond essence
blanched almonds for decoration
beat egg for glazing

Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Cream the margarine (
or butter) and sugar together until light, white and fluffy. Beat in the
egg and almond essence. Stir in the sifted dry ingredients to make a
stiff dough.

Form the mixture into balls about 1 - 1.5 inch diameter and place these
on a greased baking tray. Place half an almond (split lengthways) on
each ball and press to flatten slightly. Brush with beaten egg.

Bake in a moderate oven (350 deg F / 180 deg C) for 20 minutes or until
golden. Cool on a wire rack. This quantity makes about 45 biscuits.
