PREPARATION:

Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. In a medium bowl, mix almond butter, vanilla extract, almond extract, confectioners sugar and butter or margarine with clean hands until blended well. Press mixture into small balls, each no larger than one inch in diameter. Place balls on prepared baking sheet and refrigerate at least 20 minutes. Meanwhile, in the top of a double boiler over simmering water, melt chocolate and shortening, stirring constantly. When smooth, remove from heat. Remove almond butter balls from refrigerator and roll one by one in chocolate coating.  Remove using a fork, gently shaking off excess, and place back on wax paper, topping with an almond sliver.  Refrigerate 30 minutes or until chocolate is firm. Serve, or store airtight in refrigerator or a cool, dry place for up to a week.
