Grandma W made biscotti dough with fig center, a very Sicilian cookie. I never liked the figs, so she made this for me. I always got my very own special batch of these yummy cookies. Even when she moved into assisted living, Grandma arranged to make them at a relative's house and sent them to me. After she passed, I made some with my friend Mark, in biscuit rounds. It was like Grandma gave me a hug, and showed me once more that I was special to her. That is what these cookies are to me, a special hug from my Grandma.

How to Make Almond Rolls, Grandma W's


  1. Make an oblong out of the dough with rolling pin. Spread with almond paste and wrap. Bake at 375 degrees 12 min. Let stand 4 min then frost with a powdered sugar frosting and slice.
  2. NOTE: I have also cut these out into circles, filled and pressed edges shut to have half moon shaped cookies. They are less messy to eat on Mark's way home if I bake them this way!
