      This has become a staple cookie at our house. Because I'm a very busy mom I buy ground almonds at Trader Joe's rather than blending my own and in stead of making the cookies into balls I just take the dough and shape it into a log, refrigerate it and then slice it when I'm ready to bake. So fast so delicious.

      It's Christmas eve and we decided to try new cookies for Santa. They're sooo delicious, we're going to try them every year! We even sent some to our neighbors. They loved them also! Perfect, try them! P.S. I don't have a food processor, but we were able to finely ground the almonds and sugar in the blender, and the rest of the recipe was made in the mixer. They came out great! Toss in powdered sugar once, then sift powdered sugar over them for a better "snowball" look.
