Cover the dough with plastic wrap and allow to stand for at least two hours, but preferably overnight.
Roll out mixture onto a floured surface, until 5mm thick. Cut out biscuits using a round biscuit cutter and place on greased baking trays. Top each one with a few slivered almonds.
Bake in a preheated oven for 10 minutes at 200 ºC.
Allow biscuits to cool and store in an airtight container.
