1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 large Land O Lakes® Egg (yolk only)
3 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
2 to 3 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Half & Half
Heat oven to 325°F.
Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in bowl; set aside.
Combine 1 cup butter, sugar and vanilla in large bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add egg yolk, continue beating until well mixed. Add flour mixture; beat at low speed until well mixed.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Make small indentation in center of each cookie with thumb or back of teaspoon.
Bake 10-11 minutes or until set. Cool 3 minutes on cookie sheet; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely.
Combine all filling ingredients except half & half in medium bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often and gradually adding enough half & half for desired piping consistency.
Spoon filling into large disposable pastry bag fitted with large star tip. Pipe filling into indent in each cookie. Insert 5 sliced almonds sideways in a spiral pattern into filling.
- If cookies spread too much, refrigerate dough about 30 minutes.
- If you don’t have a pastry bag, spoon filling into large resealable plastic food bag. Snip off one corner of bag; pipe filling into center of each cookie.
