Ingredients

3/4 cup sliced almonds
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon almond extract
1 2/3 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon fine salt
1 cup powdered sugar


Pulse almonds and sugar in a food processor until very finely ground. Add the butter and process until smooth, about 1 minute. Scrape the dough off the inside of the bowl, if needed. Add the vanilla and almond extracts and pulse to combine. Add the flour and salt and pulse to make a soft dough. Turn the dough out onto a large piece of waxed paper and roll into a log about 15 inutes long and 1 1/2 inches wide. Wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.



Cut the chilled dough into 1/2 inch pieces and roll by hand into balls. Space the cookies evenly on the prepared baking sheets and bake until slightly golden, rotating the sheets once, 15-20 minutes. Put the confectioners sugar in a pie plate. Briefly cool the cookies on a rack, then gently toss in the confectioners sugar until evenly coated. Return to rack.
