Another Christmas favourite. I make Chocolate Almond Crisps whenever I make these, to use up the egg whites, and because they make such a good contrast to these rich and buttery morsels. Not for dieters, but oh-so-good.
Saw Rachael Ray and Oprah make this on an Oprah holiday party show. It took me 7 minutes, but who's counting! To give as a gift, wrap in cellophane and tie with a bow. Add an ornament or candy cane to make it festive. Variations include Recipe #146386 and Recipe #146387.
These Christmas cookies are so pretty, with a sweet almond paste surprise in the center, topped with a tasty almond glaze and a sparkling coating of edible glitter or coarse sugar crystals. They look like they take forever to make, but only you need to know how easy they are! Yield is approximate - these cookie recipes come out differently every time (so it seems to me...).
I found this in a local newspaper. I tried it out on a night when my teenage daughters had a house full of friends over for a movie. I managed to grab a piece before the dish was grabbed and the bars inhaled. Delicious!
Generally my response to non-chocolate candy is "what's the point?" This, however, has become my favorite Christmas candy! My daughter found it in one of those Pillsbury/Betty Crocker booklets they tempt you with at the checkout stands. Prep time does not include cooling time.
