Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. With cooking spray, grease 2 baking sheets.
  2. In food processor, chop ½ cup nuts until fine, like flour; set aside. In food processor, coarsely chop remaining nuts; place in bowl with flour, chocolate, baking powder and cinnamon.
  3. In large bowl of electric mixer beat eggs at medium speed until fluffy. Add finely ground almonds, sugar, butter and orange peel; beat until blended. Stir in flour mixture to form dough. Divide dough into quarters; on well-floured work surface, shape each quarter into a 12-by2-inch cylinder. Place 2 cylinders on each prepared baking sheet, and bake 25 to 30 minutes, until firm in center. Cool slightly; while still warm, with serrated knife, cut each cylinder diagonally into ½- inch thick slices. Place on baking sheets. Bake about 5 to 7 minutes, or just until crisp and brown on one side; turn and brown on other side 5 to 7 minutes longer. Cool on wire rack. If desired, drizzle with melted semi-sweet chocolate.
