2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups unbleached whole almonds
3 large eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 teaspoons Sambuca
Rare Vos Sauce:
4 bottles Rare Vos
2 cups sugar
1. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Stir in the almonds.
2. Stir in the almonds. Whisk eggs and vanilla together. Stir into flour mixture. Knead the dough until smooth (1-2 minutes). Divide in half and shape into 12-inch-long logs.
3. Gently press down on the logs to flatten them until they are about 2 inches wide and 1 inch high. Bake on baking sheet at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.
4. Let cool on rack. Cut diagonally into 1/4 inch thick slices. Bake the sliced cookies for 10-15 minutes at 350.
Combine sugar and beer in a heavy non-reactive pot and gently reduce until 1/4 of original volume.
