My mom got this recipe from a card at the grocery store about 15 years ago and it's become a family favorite! I've tweaked it a little to make it my own. These are great fresh but are out of this world if allowed to "age" for a week to ten days in a container at room temperature. The original recipe called for ground almonds but I toast my own for better flavour. Yield is approximate. Prep time includes decorating time.
