In a food processor, pulse flour, SPLENDA® Granulated, cornstarch, orange zest and salt to combine. Add butter, egg yolks and vanilla and pulse until dough comes together.

Shape dough into 2 logs about 1½-inch (4 cm) in diameter, wrap in plastic and chill until firm (or freeze and then thaw refrigerated).

Preheat oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Slice cookies into ¼-inch (7 mm) cookies and place on prepared baking tray. Lightly whisk egg white and brush onto cookies. Arrange a few almond slices on each cookie.

Bake for about 15 minutes, until the almonds begin to toast, then cool.

Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days or freeze up to a month.
