Preheat oven to 350*F (175*C). Lightly grease baking sheets; set aside.

In a food processor pulse 2 cups almonds with sugar until ground fine.

Add egg whites, almond extract and salt and pulse until combined.

Roll mixture into 32 (1-inch) balls and arrange about 2-inches apart on baking sheets.

Slightly flatten balls and dust lightly with powdered sugar. Press 1 almond into each cookie.
