Almond Cookies

Spread the love

We love trying out new cookies at our house, and I think the best cookies are the ones that are made with simple ingredients. Ground almonds give these cookies that fantastic texture which I love. You can serve these light, tender cookies with ice cream or simply with a cup of coffee or tea.


  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 100 g dark chocolate (60% cocoa)
  • 1 ½ tbsp butter
  • ½ cup ground almonds
  • 1 ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 4 egg white
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder


  1. Finely chop chocolate and transfer it to a bowl.
  2. Bring milk to a boil and pour into the chocolate immediately. Stir until smooth.
  3. Cut butter into small pieces and add to the chocolate mixture. Melt by gently stirring with a spatula.
  4. Whisk egg whites to soft peak. Add powdered sugar at the very end.
  5. Combine sugar, cocoa powder and almonds. Add to the egg mixture gently stirring with the spatula.
  6. Use a pastry bag to drop the dough about 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet covered with parchment. Bake at 400° F (200° C) for 7-8 minutes.
  7. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and let the cookies cool.
  8. Transfer the chocolate mixture to the pastry bag. Spread the mixture on a flat surface of a cookie and top with another one. Press lightly. Repeat with the remaining cookies.
