1 cup blanched whole almonds (6 ounces)
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup confectioners sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 tablespoons amaretto liqueur
2 cups confectioners sugar

With floured hands, roll dough into 3/4-inch balls. Place 1-1/2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Place in refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Bake cookies until golden brown, about 15 minutes. Remove to rack; let cool completely.
In cup, stir together confectioners sugar and enough milk for good glazing consistency. Spoon 1/2 teaspoon glaze onto each cookie, letting glaze drip down sides. Let dry slightly. Top with non-pareils or sprinkles.
