 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3      cups          ground almonds
    1      cup           sugar
      1/2  pound         unsalted butter (2 sticks)
    2      cups          unbleached allpurpose flour
    1      teaspoon      salt
    1      tablespoon    water
 
 Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine ground almonds and sugar. Blend
 in butter. Add dry ingredients. Add water and blend well. Shape into a
 flattened ball. Wrap in parchment and chill at least 1/2 hour. Roll
 out onto lightly floured board until approximately 1/4-inch thick. Cut
 into desired shapes, and place on parchment covered baking sheet about
 2 inches apart. Bake until golden brown. Cool. Sandwich with strained
 or seedless jam (raspberry is great!) or chocolate ganache.
 
 Yield: 5 dozen Sandwich Cookies
