    KLHquilts's Note:

    I got this recipe from a Woman's Day magazine in the early 1970s, when I was in college ... I've made 'em every year since then, and they are hugely popular with everyone I give cookie baskets to at Christmas time. I've changed the recipe a bit to emphasize the almonds.

    Ingredients:

    • 2 1/3 cups flour (all-purpose)
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 2/3 cup sugar
    • 1 cup almonds (unblanched, finely chopped)
    • 1 teaspoon almond extract
    • 1 egg yolk
    • 1 cup butter, softened
    • 6 ounces chocolate chips (semisweet)
    • 3 tablespoons butter
    • 1 tablespoon water, hot but not boiling

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Sift flour with 1/4 teaspoons salt.
    2. 2
      With a hand mixer at medium speed, beat butter, sugar, egg yolk and almond extract until light and fluffy.
    3. 3
      Mix in almonds. (Dough will be stiff.).
    4. 4
      Shape dough into two rolls, each about 1.5" in diameter. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least two hours.
    5. 5
      Preheat oven to 350. Cut dough into slices 1/4" thick. Bake on greased cookie sheets at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Cool completely.
    6. 6
      Make chocolate dip: Melt chocolate morsels, 3 tablespoons butter and 1 tablespoons hot water in double boiler.
    7. 7
      Dip cooled cookies in chocolate dip. Only dip half of the cookie, so there's a semicircle of chocolate, and a semicircle of cookie.
    8. 8
      Optional: Dust with ground or chopped almonds, or other decorations.
