Preheat oven to 325°.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons matzo cake meal.
Place the almonds in a food processor; pulse 3 to 4 times or until coarsely chopped.
Lightly spoon 3/4 cup matzo cake meal into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Add 3/4 cup matzo cake meal, sugar, and remaining ingredients to almonds; pulse 3 to 4 times or just until combined. (Mixture will be sticky.)
Using hands dusted with matzo cake meal, divide dough into 16 portions. Roll each portion into a ball; pinch tops to form a pear shape. Place on prepared baking sheet. Bake at 325° for 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.
