Almond Butter Cookies

1 c. butter, softened
1/3 c. confectioners sugar
1 c. ground almonds
1 tsp. almond extract
2 c. all-purpose flour
Garnish:  Additional confectioners sugar, edible glitter, if desired

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease baking sheets.  In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and confectioners sugar until creamy.  Add almonds and almond extract.  Beat well, slowly beat in flour.  Shape dough into 1 inch balls.  Place on baking sheets and bake for 18 minutes or until lightly brown.  Watch carefully – 10 minutes may be all you need.  Immediately remove cookies (3 to 4 at a time) into a plastic bag with confectioners sugar and shake gently to coat cookies well.  Yield:  3 dozen.
