The combination of almond and chocolate flavours in these rich cookies is really outstanding! The amount of almond extract is just right...a bit of almond flavour without it being overwhelming. I made these a bit on the large side but made smaller they'd be perfect on a Christmas sweet tray. One tip: The glaze thickens at room temperature so decorate the cookies when the glaze is slightly warm or just reheat it for a few seconds in the microwave. Thanks, Marg. I'll be making these again!
