I guess it's more cookies around here.

Roasted Almond Thumbprints
I've made many verions of thumbprints in my life, and I like them all. But the roasty flavor of the almonds in these and the AMOUNT of almonds makes them especially delicious. The recipe says refrigerating the dough is optional, but I found I needed to to firm mine up. And I've learned from Alice Medrich that cookie dough is almost always improved by a little refrigeration time.
