Preheat oven to 300 F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a food processor grind almond slivers into a fine meal.
Add coconut sugar to the processor and process for 15 seconds more.
Add to processor : 2 egg whites, almond extract, vanilla extract, and sea salt.
Then process until a smooth paste forms.
Put just processor bowl, with almond paste in it, in the freezer for 7 minutes ( this helps the dough be less sticky).
Use a teaspoon to put round spoonfuls onto parchment paper.
Decorate with almond slices* optional
Bake for 20 to 30 minutes until golden.
Lets cookies cool completely before removing from paper.
Melt chocolate, and spread on ¼ of cookie or drizzle on.* optional
Let chocolate dry, or put in fridge or freezer for a few minute to help chocolate dry faster.
