Filed under: Cookies, Desserts — blackteapot @ 12:21 am
  • 1 cup softened butter or margarine
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp almond extract
  • 6oz white chocolate, chopped
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/3 cups unsweetened chocolate chips
  • 1 cup slivered almonds

Cream butter and both sugars in a medium bowl until fluffy. Beat in eggs and almond extract.

Heat white chocolate in a double boiler until almost melted. Remove from heat and stir to finish melting. Cool to room temperature and stir into sugar mixture. Add flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Stir until just moistened.

Stir in almonds and chocolate chips. Divide dough in half and wrap in plastic wrap to form a log. Refrigerate for at least an hour.

Cut each log into 10 portions. Place 2 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet. Bake for ten minutes, or until edges are darkened. Do not over bake.

Cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool.
