1. In a large bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add the 1 cup powdered sugar. Beat until mixture is fluffy and light in color, scraping side of bowl occasionally. Beat in egg yolks, brandy, and vanilla until combined.
2. Using a wooden spoon, stir in flour and almonds until well mixed. Cover and chill about 1 hour or until dough is easy to handle.
3. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Dip the bottom of a glass in additional powdered sugar and flatten each ball to 1/4-inch thickness.
4. Bake in the preheated oven for 12 to 14 minutes or until set. Transfer cookies to a wire rack. While warm, lightly brush the cookies with rose water (if desired) and sprinkle with additional powdered sugar. Cool completely on wire rack. Makes about 84 cookies.
