Romancing The Chocolate: Cookies: Almond Nuggets with Chocolate Drizzle: From Denny: Chocolate and almonds are the ideal combination for a cookie. This is basically a sugar cookie with sliced almonds that makes for a stiff dough.
It is a simple exercise of dropping the cookie dough onto the cookie sheet - so that makes it easy even for beginner bakers. The chocolate comes in when you ice the cookie with bittersweet chocolate that has been melted together with real butter and almond extract.
What's amusing is how the recipe creator actually thinks these mere 24 cookies will last long enough to make it into a covered container. Bring your friends! :)
