Cream shortening, sugar and eggs together until smooth.
Add almond extract and the flour.
The dough should be smooth and not stick to the fingers.
Make a ball about the size of a hickory nut and roll out to the thickness of a lead pencil.
Shape in the form of an cookie sheet.
Let stand overnight.
To glaze:
Beat egg white slightly with water, brush over tops of cookies with pastry brush, dip in cinnamon and sugar mixture and sprinkle with finely chopped almonds.
Bake at 400°F. 8 minutes.
If coloring is desired, roll in gaily colored sugars.
