Almond Snowballs

These Christmas cookies are so pretty, with a sweet almond paste surprise in the center, topped with a tasty almond glaze and a sparkling coating of edible glitter or coarse sugar crystals. They look like they take forever to make, but only you need to know how easy they are! Yield is approximate - these cookie recipes come out differently every time (so it seems to me...).
