"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Directions:
Pulse the almonds and sugar in a food processor until very finely ground.
Add the butter; process until smooth, about 1 minute.
Scrape the bowl, if needed.
Add the vanilla and almond extracts; pulse to combine.
Add the flour and salt and pulse to make a soft dough.
Place the dough onto a large piece of waxed paper; roll it into a log about 15 inches long and 1 1/2 inches wide.
Wrap and refrigerate it for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
Cut the chilled dough into 1/2-inch pieces; roll them by hand into balls.
Space the cookie balls evenly on the prepared baking sheets.
Bake them until slightly golden, 15-20 minutes, rotating the sheets once, halfway through the baking.
Put the confectioner's sugar in a pie plate.
Briefly cool the cookies on a rack, then gently toss them in the pie plate until they're evenly coated.
Return them to the rack; cool them to room temperature; toss them again in the pie plate.
