I write it or try to at least.  I get the post ready and then I don’t finish it.

I guess you can say I have been trying to finish this post or write it for over a month.

Yes, I know I am behind.  Or at least have a big one 🙂

This is how it is going to be.  I am going to post the pictures of these wonderful cookies.   If you would like the recipe, post a comment, and I would be more than happy to email it to you 🙂

I hope everyone had a good Holiday and a Happy New Year 🙂

1/2 pound almond paste, broken into small pieces
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 egg
Additional Confectioners’ sugar  or Pearl Sugar to Garnish

Preheat oven to 350 F

In an electric mixer, combine almond paste, sugar, flour, and confectioners’ sugar.  Mix on love speed until blended.  Add egg.  Mix on low speed for 2 minutes.  This will make a stick dough

Roll dough into 1 inch balls.  Then roll each ball in pearl sugar. .  Place on parchment-lined cookie sheet, spacing them 2 inches apart.  Dust the tops of the cookies with additional confectioners’ sugar (if you didn’t do the pearl sugar).

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown.  Remove the cookie sheet from the oven.  Let cookies cool completely on parchment for easiest removal.  When cookies are completely cooled, use a metal spatula to loosen them from the parchment.  Store in an airtight container.

Makes 20 cookies.
