This recipe will allow you to prepare twelve delicious generous sized cookiesin the style of classic American cookies.
It is a very simple preparation, using ingredients and utensils that we generally have at home. If you do not have almond flour, you can easily replace it with wheat flour and you will have some very delicious chocolate cookies as well.
I have used electric whisks for the preparation, but if you do not have them, you can also do the mixture manually.
In today’s proposal, I have given them a special touch by crowning them with milk chocolate and almonds, although you can experiment with others toppings like white chocolate or jam. Either way, they will be delicious!Eva Salorio

Ingredients for chocolate and almond cookies
- 115 g butter at room temperature
- 115g sugar
- 1 egg L
- 1 yolk L
- 1 teaspoon vanilla paste
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 125 g wheat flour
- 125 g ground almonds
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 60 g pure cocoa powder
- 1 pinch of salt
- 25 g sliced almonds
- 100 g milk chocolate
How to make chocolate and almond cookies
We begin by beating 115 g of butter at room temperature with 115 g of sugar, until well integrated.
Next, we add 1 L egg, 1 L yolk, 1 teaspoon of vanilla paste and 1 tablespoon of milk.Eva Salorio
We continue beating until everything is integrated. At this point, we will obtain a somewhat lumpy dough but don’t worry, this is normal and will smooth out after the next step.
Next, we sift the dry ingredients with a sieve, that is, 125 g of wheat flour, 125 g of ground almonds, 1 quarter teaspoon of baking soda, 60 g of cocoa and 1 pinch of salt.
We mix until the dough thickens and begins to separate from the walls of the bowl.
Now is the time to take the dough out of the bowl and form 12 balls that we will place, well separated, on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.Eva Salorio
Then, we flatten the balls with the back of a spoon and form a small hole in the middle. We put them in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Shortly before this hour, we preheat the oven to 190ºC, with heat up and down and bake the cookies for 14-15 minutes and let them cool on a rack for about 30 minutes.
While the cookies are cooling, we are going to take advantage of the fact that we have a hot oven to toast 25 g of flaked almonds, also at 190 ºC. We place them in a baking dish or tray and bake them for 4 or 5 minutes, until they are golden brown. Halfway through cooking, we will give them a few turns so that they all brown evenly.Eva Salorio
When the cookies have cooled, we melt the 100 g of milk chocolate in the microwave and, with the help of a spoon, fill the central hole that we had formed.Eva Salorio
Finally, we finish by putting some sliced almonds on the still melted chocolate, so that they stick to it.Eva Salorio
When the melted chocolate has cooled, we can serve our delicious and colorful cookies.Eva Salorio
