I have been making these cookies for years and love them.I lightly toast my almonds and get them really fine in the food prossesor.I also use a few drops of yellow food coloring in the frosting.

These are very tasty, but after combining the ingredients, found that there was no way the dough was going to stick together enough to make a cookie....add another 1/2 cup butter....they turned out beautifully and are quite yummy
