Chocolate Almond Cookies Recipe

Special occasions around our house have always been indicated by these chocolate-dipped, jam-filled cookies. They not only look appealing, they taste terrific, too.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + chilling Bake: 10 min. + cooling YIELD:12 servings


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened

  • 1 cup finely chopped blanched almonds

  • 1. In a large bowl, cream the butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. Combine flour and almonds; gradually add to the creamed mixture. Shape into one 12-in. roll; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 4 hours or until firm.
