Place 1 1/2 cup of the almonds in the blender or food processor and process until ground.
Line a baking sheet with greased foil. Stir together ground almonds, whole almonds and honey in a medium bowl, mixing well. Line the work surface with wax paper. With clean, wet hands, form the almond/honey mixture into a sticky ball; divide in half. Keep dividing each ball in half until there are 32 small clusters. Lay each cluster on the prepared baking sheet and bake 30 minutes.
Let cool completely before removing from foil. Cookies will still be soft and chewy.
Serve, or store airtight for up to 3 days.
To roast whole almonds:.
Spread in an ungreased baking pan. Place in 350ºF oven and bake 7 to 10 minutes or until golden brown and fragrant. Stir once or twice to assure even browning. Almonds will continue to roast slightly after removing from oven.
