      Almond Shortbread:116:
      2 tbsp slivered almonds
      1/3 cup all purpose flour
      1-1/4 tbsp sugar
      2 tbsp unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
      Preheat oven to 350°F. Place half the almonds in a shallow pan and toast in oven 5-7 minutes, or until golden. Shake pan at 3 minute intervals.

      Transfer to a dish to cool. Reduce oven to 325°F. Place toasted almonds in a food processor and grind to a fine powder.

      Add flour and 1/4 cup sugar and mix thoroughly. Add butter and process until mixture resembles coarse meal. Roll dough into a ball.

      Press dough into a shallow baking pan to .5 in. thickness. Pierce dough all over with a fork.

      Press remaining slivered almonds gently into surface. Sprinkle with remaining sugar. Bake 40 minutes or until golden.

      Remove from oven. Cut into squares and cool in pan.
      Top this with fresh or frozen frozen (thawed) berries or peaches. Canned fruit will work, too.

      2 servings = about 240 calories (dependent on topping)
