½ teaspoon Salt
1 cup Butter or margarine; softened
¼ cup Honey
¾ teaspoon Almond extract
1½ cup Finely chopped blanched almonds

Sift together flour and salt. Work butter in a bowl until creamy; add honey and beat until well blended. Add almond extract. Gradually add sifted dry ingredients, beating well after each addition. Stir in nuts. Cover and chill about 1 hour. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Shape teaspoonfuls of dough into 1-inch balls and place on ungreased cookie sheets about 1-½ inches apart. Bake 12-15 minutes, or until lightly browned. Roll cookies in confectioner's sugar while still warm, and again when cooled. Makes about 7 dozen cookies.
