I spied this cookie on pinterest and had to try it.
From the Better Homes & Gardens website, it's called Almond Icebox Rounds. You can get the recipe here. First you mix up the dough.
I used Trader Joe's Just Almond Meal instead of "3/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted and chopped". I did not toast the almond meal.
The dough tasted devine!
Plop half of dough on plastic wrap.
Form a log by rolling it back and forth in the plastic wrap. Then coat with sliced almonds and chill.
Slice and bake. They don't spread out much so you can fit all of them on 2 cookie sheets. There is no egg or leaveners in the recipe.
I swept stray almonds "under the cookies".
This recipe is definitely a KEEPER. Freezes well, too.
