Sugar, and fat, people, it tastes great! In the case of these cookies, it tastes AMAZING.
These yummy morsels, which at a recent gathering, my future son in law scarfed down at an amazing rate, only surpassed by my own cookie gobbling performance, were made from this recipe. The hardest part of the recipe was finding the almond paste in the grocery store. You don't even have to get out the flour. Nope, these babies are flour free. You could even leave off the maraschino cherries, and have yourself a tasty cookie. The cuteness factor would be diminished, but once that sucker hits your mouth, you won't notice.
