Notes

When you take out after baking the balls should be lightly golden at the top this is how it looks when done. When you try to shape it will hold the shape and this the right consistency. Butter should be not hard but still cold. Don't powder the almonds finely it should be chunky. Don't roll when hot it will melt. According to my oven temperature I have set it,adjust according to yours.

I bet if I had that box of cookies in my hand right now, all the cookies would have disappeared in just seconds. Wonderful.
