Ingredients

Cookie

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup real semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted, cooled
1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted, finely chopped
Sugar

Frosting

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 tablespoon LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened
1/4 teaspoon almond extract

Directions

Heat oven to 375°F. Combine sugar and butter in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add flour and baking powder. Beat, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Add cooled chocolate; continue beating until well mixed. Add almonds; mix well into dough by hand.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten with bottom of glass dipped in sugar. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes or until edges are firm. Cool completely.

Combine powdered sugar, butter and almond extract in small bowl. Beat at low speed, adding enough half & half for desired frosting consistency. Spread about 1/2 teaspoon frosting over each cookie. Let stand until frosting is completely set.

Recipe Tip

To toast almonds, heat oven to 350°F. Spread almonds onto ungreased 15x10x1-inch jelly-roll pan. Bake for 5 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until golden brown.
