Preparation / Directions:
About 1 1/2 hours before serving or earlier in day:
Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Spray large cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray. In food processor with knife blade attached or in blender at medium speed, blend almonds and sugar until almonds are finely ground.
In 10-inch skillet over low heat, cook almond mixture, butter, flour and milk (do not use margarine because t separates from sugar during cooking), stirring, until butter melts and mixture is blended. Keep mixture warm over very low heat. Drop 1 heaping teaspoon mixture onto cookie sheet. Repeat to make 3 more cookies, about 2 inches apart. (Do not place more than 4 on cookie sheet, because after baking they must be shaped quickly before hardening.) Bake 5 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove cookie sheet from oven and let cool about 1 minute to set cookies slightly. With spatula, loosen and turn cookies over, one by one, and quickly roll around handle of wooden spoon. (If cookies get too hard to roll, reheat in oven a minute to soften.) Cool cookies on wire rack. Repeat until all batter is used, greasing cookie sheet each time. Store cookies in tightly covered container.
