4 (1 ounce) squares
milk chocolate, chopped
finely chopped blanched almonds
1 3/4 cups
unbleached all-purpose flour
unsweetened cocoa powder
These cookies are so delicious! The cocoa powder makes a tasty light texture, and the occasional piece of apricot is a real flavor bonus. So easy to make ahead, bakes and cools quickly. I gave these as office gifts and everyone just loved them! They will be a new holiday tradition for us.
Really enjoyed these!!! :) I divided the recipe in 4, just because I am going to be the only one eating these... LOL! So when I divided it into 4, I should have used a half an egg, or less. These came out quite fluffy. But that was my own fault. Still yummy. I feel like they could have been a bit more chocolately. Definitely will make this again!
I thought these cookies were just okay. I found the recipe in my recipe box and was looking for a recipe to use some apricot preserves and just made 1/2 recipe. I didn't understand the method of folding it into a block or why, so I just used a cookie scoop and scooped it. I was expecting so much more taste wise with the idea of chocolate, almonds, apricot. It just tasted like a "brownie with fruit and nuts" in the shape of a flat chewy cookie. The chocolate pieces melted right into it creating a gummy cookie, along with the fruit, with odd bits of almonds. The texture was just strange to me, unless it is my preference. Maybe, I was just expecting more than a brownie.
Wonderful cookies! I chopped the chocolate and almonds in the food processor to make it easier. Loved the convenience of making the dough ahead and then baking them off when I wanted. I sprinkled the top with some sanding sugar before baking. I bit hit in our house. Think I have to make another batch very soon!
A keeper, especially with kids around!!
