Preparation time: 15 minutes

Method

Preheat oven to 180°C. Lightly spray a cookie sheet with vegetable cooking spray; set aside.

Toast almonds in a shallow pan for 6 - 8 minutes, stirring once, or until lightly browned. Set aside.

Beat SPLENDA® Granulated, 3 eggs, and milk at medium speed of an electric mixer for 3 minutes or until mixture is smooth and pale yellow in colour. Beat in extract.

Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; add to SPLENDA® Granulated mixture and beat on low speed until a stiff dough forms. Stir in almonds and raisins.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead lightly 4 or 5 times.

Divide dough in half; shape each portion into an 8 inch log. Place logs on prepared cookie sheet and flatten to ¾ inch thickness; brush with beaten egg.

Bake for 20 minutes until puffed and golden brown; remove from oven and reduce oven temperature to 165°C.

Remove logs from baking sheet to a wire rack; cool 10 minutes. Cut each log diagonally into ½ inch thick slices with a serrated knife, using a gentle sawing motion. Place slices on cookie sheets. Bake 10 minutes; turn slices over, and bake 10 additional minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool.
