  • Cover cookie dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate, 3 hours to overnight.

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

  • Pour confectioners' sugar into a shallow bowl. Roll cookie dough into small balls and coat with confectioners' sugar. Arrange on the baking sheets.

  • Bake cookies in the preheated oven until lightly browned and firm, 10 to 15 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

You can use a wooden spoon to mix in the almond meal in step 1.

Chilling the dough makes it less sticky and easier to work with. If you have no time, you can skip the refrigerating part.
