"I originally posted this recipe to another site in 2009. The name and inspiration for this recipe came from a wonderful lady on another site, who wanted to remain nameless.She will also remain nameless here. If you like almonds as much as I do, you really are going to enjoy this cookie.If you are using whole almonds chop them before measuring. Also if you like a cookie that has a sweet/salty thing going on, use the roasted and salted almonds. To flatten the cookies,use the flat bottom of a glass dipped in sugar.The way that this recipe is written gives me 32 cookies, depending on how big you make yours you might get more or less. The time for each cookie sheet is the time for baking. Please let cookies cool on cookie sheet for 2 to 3 minutes before removing, let finish cooling on wire racks.Servings are for 2 cookies each. And thanks again to my " Secret Chef " . ( You know who you are ;)) Posted to " ZAZZ "on 10/28/13. " Keep Smiling :)"

I made these and right out of the oven I dipped them in confectioners sugar. They are delicious and my lil guy couldn't wait to take some to school in his lunch box. A real winner for the 3 of us!
