London Almond Cookies


Some has almond nibs and some with melted white chocolate

Today I made another cookie for my festival next week.  This one has almond inside the cookie and coated with chocolate.

Ingredients

125g butter, diced
75g icing sugar, sifted
1 egg yolk
225g plain flour, sifted
1 tsp rice flour
300g whole toasted almonds with skin, halved
450g dark chocolate, melted
Small paper cases
Almond nips or chocolate rice for decoration


Method

  • Cream butter and sugar until light and creamy ( I just used wooden spoon)  Beat in the egg yolk. 
  • Add plain flour and rice flour. Fold and mix well.
  • Take a marble-sized dough (approximately 8-10g) and wrap around half the almond. Shape into a small egg. Place on greased cookie trays and bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Cool on wire racks.
  • Place cooled cookies on small paper cases. Top and cover with melted chocolate.
  • Sprinkle almond nips or chocolate rice liberally over the top.
