Cream the butter with the sugars.
Beat in the eggs one at a time.
Stir in the honey and almond extract.
Blend in the ground almonds.
Sift the flour with the baking soda.
Add to the almond mixture gradually; mix, then knead with your hands until the flour is well blended.
Chill briefly if necessary for easier handling.
Pinch off pieces of the dough, about the size of a large marble (3/4 inch).
