ALMOND CHOCOLATE COOKIES



These Almond Chocolate Cookies are deliciously simple to make yet are elegant and tasty dessert.

The dough of these cookies can be prepared in advance, keep refrigerated for use the next day. Substitute your choice of nuts for the almonds if needed.

As we grow older, we tend to be more health conscious and avoid taking overly sweet desserts. This is the reason why I resort to make my own rather than buying the ready made cookies that are way too sweet.



ALMOND CHOCOLATE COOKIES
Yield   :    30 cookies

1/2 cup softened  butter
1/2 cup  fine sugar
90 g  almond strips
1 cup all purpose flour
2 tablespoon cocoa powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
extra almond for decoration




METHOD

Cream butter and sugar until creamy.

Sift flour, cocoa, salt and baking soda into a mixing bowl.

Now combine butter mixture with dry ingredients. Mix in almond strips. Stir to combine  Preheat oven @ 160 C.

Shape into 1 in ball or use cookie cutter, flatten them slightly then dot each cookies with  almond strips and place onto baking sheet.

Bake for 15-20 minutes. Gently  transfer onto rack to cool..
