Orange Almond Icebox Cookies Recipe
In a food processor, pulse flour, SPLENDA® Granulated, cornstarch, orange zest and salt to combine. Add butter, egg yolks and vanilla and pulse until dough comes together. Shape dough into 2 logs about 1 1/2 inches (4 cm) in diameter, wrap in plastic and chill until firm (or freeze and then thaw refrigerated).
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C) and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Slice cookies into 1/4 inch (7 mm) cookies and place on prepared baking tray. Lightly whisk egg white and brush onto cookies. Arrange a few almond slices on each cookie.
Bake for about 15 minutes, until the almonds begin to toast, then cool.
Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days or freeze up to a month.
