Cream butter until fluffy and beat in sugars.
Mix in orange juice, rind and egg and beat well.
Gradually stir in dry ingredients, then almonds.
Shape into rolls about 1 1/2" in diameter, wrap and chill several hours until firm.
Preheat oven to 375° F.
Using a very sharp knife (because of almonds in dough), slice 1/8" thick and place 1 1/2" apart on greased baking sheets.
Bake 10-12 minutes until lightly ringed with brown.
Transfer to wire racks to cool.
