    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    sandwic ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Toast almonds- spread on baking sheet and insert in preheated 350*F oven, stirring frequently, for about 10 minutes or until nuts are lightly toasted to pale golden brown Process almonds in food processor with the 3 tbs of sugar until almonds are finely ground.
    2. 2
      Set aside.
    3. 3
      Sift the flour, baking powder and salt onto a sheet of wax paper or into a bowl.
    4. 4
      Set aside.
    5. 5
      Cream butter with remaining 3/4 cups sugar until mixture is light in colour and texture (at least 3 minutes).
    6. 6
      Beat egg and almond extract;then the almond mixture into to butter mixture until just smooth.
    7. 7
      On a low speed, beat in flour mixture until just smooth.
    8. 8
      Cover dough tightly in plastic wrap.
    9. 9
      Refrigerate at least 2 hours (or until well chilled) or up to 5 days.
    10. 10
      Position racks in oven to center and top third of oven and preheat to 350*F.
    11. 11
      Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper or lightly butter them.
    12. 12
      Portion dough into 80 pieces, about 1 tsp each.
    13. 13
      Roll into balls.
    14. 14
      (I have heard that you can put two bits of dough in one hand and roll them into 2 balls between your palms, which will cut your rolling time in half.) Place balls about 1 1/2 inches apart on baking sheets.
    15. 15
      Do not crowd.
    16. 16
      It is likely that 3 sheets will be needed to bake all of the cookies.
    17. 17
      Bake, switching the position of the sheets from top to bottom and front to back after about 5-6 minutes.
    18. 18
      Cook another 5-6 minutes, or until lightly browned all over.
    19. 19
      Let cookies cool on the sheets for about 3 minutes, then transfer to cooling racks and cool completely.
    20. 20
      Melt chocolate (a double boiler is recommended, but any method is fine).
    21. 21
      Spread about 1/2 tsp on the underside of a cookie, then lightly sandwich between another cookie.
    22. 22
      Alternatively-a parchment cone can be filled with melted chocolate and the chocolate can be piped onto cookies before being sandwiched.
    23. 23
      Refrigerate cookies breifly to set chocolate, but they can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for some time.
    24. 24
      **Fora fancier cookie** Lightly brush each cookie with an egg glaze (beat 1 egg+ 1 tsp water) and top with a few sliced almonds before baking.

      These are pretty good .. however they do not taste like pepperidge farm cookies .. I think the stated amount of almonds is wrong (doubled?) because the dough was crumbly and very difficult to handle .. I am not sure is I would try this recipe again for this reason .. thank you

      I agree with Najwa. These are pretty good cookies, but nothing like milano cookies. I reduced the amount of almonds to 3/4 cup, and my dough wasn't too hard to work with. I guess maybe if I'm looking for almond cookies, I'll make these again, otherwise prolly not.
