Do you mean like macaroons? I'll have a look through my books.

just do normal plain cookies with almonds added.
mix sugar and butter. add one egg and self raising flour. some baking powder and chopped almonds. bake for tenish minutes at 190ish.

There used to be a delicious almond biscuit inthe Be Ro cookery book. This was the (eek!) 20 years ago version mind you. Almond rounds I think they were called... must get the recipe from my mum if she's not thrown the book away.
