I made these last year and loved them. They were a big hit with all who tried them. Everyone was amazed at how beautiful they are and how great they taste. I'm getting requests for these pastries from co-workers again. I'm heading out to buy some almond paste to make a big batch again this year. Just an FYI, they freeze well so they can be made ahead. Just don't put the powdered sugar on them until they thaw. Thanks for the recipe Luvmybge.
