Chocolate Almond Cookies

Ingredients

Cookie

⅛ cup blanched almonds

2 sticks unsalted butter, cut up

½ cup confectionary sugar

2 cups flour

⅛ tsp salt

1 tsp almond extract

 

Filling

3 ounces dark chocolate

2 Tbs unsalted butter

2 Tbs heavy cream

½ tsp almond extract

pinch of salt

1 cup confectionary sugar

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Toast almonds until lightly browned; not dark, about 5 minutes. When cool, chop finely and set aside. In a food processor or mixer, mix butter and sugar until smooth. Add remaining cookie ingredients. Do not overmix. 

 

Roll pieces of dough the size of a marble into a ball and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 minutes or until firm; do not brown. 


For the filling, chop chocolate finely. Boil butter and heavy cream in a saucepan then add to the chocolate and mix either in a food processor or beater until the chocolate is smooth. Add the remaining ingredients. Do not overmix. While the filling is still warm, spread ½ tsp on the bottom of a cookie, and place another cookie on the other side to make a sandwich. Roll the chocolate edge in the chopped almonds.
