Almomd Chocolate-Spice Cookies


Chocolate-Spice Cookies recipe













Low Cholesterol, Cholesterol-Free, Trans-fat Free, High Fiber, Low Sodium


1 ¼ cups almonds
blanched whole
1 ½ cups powdered sugar
3 ½ tablespoons cocoa powder
2 ½ teaspoons cinnamon
teaspoon cloves
3 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
bittersweet, chopped fairly fine, null, null
¼ teaspoon almond extract
2 large egg whites
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
for rolling out cookies


Heat oven to 325℉ (160℃).

Line several baking sheets with aluminum foil.

In a food processor, process the almonds and 1 cup powdered sugar until the almonds are powder-fine but not oily; stop the processor and scrape down the sides several times.

Add the cocoa powder, cinnamon, cloves, and chocolate; continue processing until the chocolate is finely ground.

Add the remaining ½ cup powdered sugar, the almond extract, and egg whites; process until the mixture is blended and just forms a mass.

Set the dough aside for 5 to 10 minutes to stiffen slightly.

Generously dust a work surface with powdered sugar.

If the dough seems too soft to roll out easily, dust it with more sugar and knead until the consistency is manageable, but avoid adding any more sugar than absolutely necessary.

Roll out the dough to ¼ inch thickness, lifting it with a spatula frequently and redusting the surface and rolling pin with powdered sugar to prevent sticking.

Cut out the cookies using a 2¼ inch heart-shaped (or similar) cutter or any cookies cutters.

Use a spatula to transfer the cookies to the prepared baking sheets, about 1 inch apart.

Bake the cookies for 9 to 12 minutes or until almost firm on top and slightly puffy.

Let them stand on the foil lined baking sheets until completely cooled.

Peel from the foil. Store airtight for 3 to 4 days.

Freeze, airtight, for longer storage.

Makes about forty 2¼ inch cookies.

Decorate cookies if desired.
