How to Make It

1. Step
Preheat the oven to 325°F (170°C). Grease a 17 x 12 x 1-inch (43 x 30 x 2.54 cm)+ baking sheet with nonstick spray and line with parchment paper.
2. Step
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and 1½ cups of caster sugar with an electric hand mixer on medium speed until smooth. Add the egg yolks and beat until fluffy.
3. Step
Add the amaretto, lemon zest, and orange zest and beat until just combined.
4. Step
Gradually add the flour and salt and mix on low speed until no dry spots remain, being careful not to overwork the dough.
5. Step
Spread the dough evenly on the prepared pan, making sure the top is as smooth as possible. Brush the dough with the egg white, then sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar.
6. Step
Bake for 20–25 minutes, or until golden brown. Turn off the oven and let the cookies cool inside for 15 minutes, then remove from the oven and cut while slightly warm.
7. Step
Serve immediately.
8. Step
Enjoy!
