Chocolate Almond (Cokdam) Cookies Recipe  @

Chocolate Almond (Cokdam)  Cookies  are deliciously simple to  make yet elegant and tasty dessert or snack  You might wonder what :cokdam" stand for.  It's a short form for chocolate and badam (almond).

Some cookie dough needs minimal chill time in the  fridge but these cookies are not required.

Highly  recommended  not making these  Chocolate Almond (Cokdam) Cookies too thick  and  if possible make them almost the same size to ensure even cooking time.   I used small cookie cutter and pleased with the result. I got about 100 cookies  for the following recipe. Each time you use the cookie cutter, dip it first in flour so you will get beautifully shaped cookies without sticking.

Make sure the almond is finely chopped in order to get beautiful shape otherwise the dough tends to break when cutting them.
