These almond chocolate cookies come together in just over an hour for a simple and rich dessert. The cookies use shortening instead of butter, which gives them a delicate texture and really lets the chocolate shine. A simple frosting made from a mixture of sugar, cocoa, and almond extract adds a nice extra bit of sweetness and flavor. These cookies are great for bringing to a gathering or bake them around the holidays for edible gifting everyone on your list will love.

Ingredients

  • 200 grams vegetable shortening
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 40 grams butter (softened)
  • 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 tablespoons milk

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 Celsius.
  2. Cream the sugar with the shortening and then add the eggs one by one, beating the mixture well. Add the vanilla.
  3. Stir in the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix to combine.
  4. Form balls 2 centimeters each in diameter. Place onto a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, until slightly firm to the touch. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  5. For the frosting, mix the confectioners sugar, cocoa, and almond extract together in a bowl and add the milk little by little until the desired consistency is reached. Spread on cookies or place in a piping bag and decorate the cookies.
