0.25 tsp Salt
0.5 cup Dried apricots finely chopped
0.3 cup Toasted sliced almonds silvered
2 Egg
2 Egg whites
3 tbsp Becel® Buttery Taste margarine melted
1 tsp Almond Extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F (180° C).
  2. Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, apricots and almonds in large bowl. Make a well in centre of flour mixture; set aside.

  4. Press and shape dough into a ball. Arrange ball on ungreased baking sheet, then shape into 40 cm-long by 2,5 cm-thick log with slightly moist hands. Bake until light golden brown and cracked on top, about 30 minutes. Let stand on baking sheet 10 minutes. Decrease oven temperature to 325° F (160° C).
  5. Place warm log on cutting board and cut on sharp diagonale 8 mm slices with serrated knife. Arrange, cut side down, on baking sheet. Bake an additional 20 minutes or until pale golden brown.
