Chocolate Almond Cookies

Cookies are the most eaten things in my house. My children can't live without them. As snacks for school, as snacks for after school, as snacks in front of TV, as snacks when they're reading or studying. In results I must have them always available in cupboard otherwise they become mad. But with my pleasure I always put them in my shopping lists or sometimes I just make them myself. Like this time, as weekend baking, I made for them chocolate almond cookies. These cookies are very light, no need eggs, good for the line and the most important my daughter loves them.
The recipe is taken from book "De Bak Encyclopedie".


300 gr flour, sifted
20 gr cacao powder, sifted
1 teaspoon baking powder, sifted
75 gr sugar
1 package vanilla sugar (8 - 10 gr)
3 drops almond essence
3 tablespoons milk
175 gr cold butter

50 gr sugar
200 gr almond flakes


1. Mix the flour, cacao and baking powder in the mixing bowl.
2. Add with sugar, vanilla, almond essence and milk. Mix the mixture through then add with butter.
3. Knead the dough until smooth and not sticky. If it's too sticky, put the dough in the fridge for a while.
4. Make a big roll then flat it. Make the cookies into the shapes you prefer.
5. Brush the cookies with milk, then sprankle with sugar and almond flakes.
6. Put them in pre-heated oven on 175°c and bake for about 15-25 minutes.

I think chocolate and almond go so well together. The cookies in a star shape look so "Christmasy". I like your blog! Nice entry for Susan's cookie blog.
