Ingredients

  • 150

    g (10 tablespoons) butter, softened

  • 115

    g (1/2 cup) caster sugar

  • 1

    egg yolk

  • 2.5

    ml (1/2 teaspoon) almond essence/extract (I replaced with vanilla)

  • 115

    g (1 cup) ground almonds (almond powder)

  • 175

    g (1 1/2 cups) plain flour

  • filling: 50g plain (semisweet) chocolate, melted

Directions

Cream butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolk, almond essence, followed by ground almonds and flour until evenly mixed. Chill for about 2 hours until firm. Prehear oven to 160 degC (325 degF). Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Break off small pieces of dough and roll into balls with your hands, making 40 altogether. Place the balls on the baking sheets, spacing them out as they will spread in the oven. Bake for 20 mins or until golden. Let cool in the baking sheet for a few mins. Transfer to cooling rack to cool. Melt chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water. Use it to sandwich the cookies in pairs, leave to set before serving.
