London Almond Cookies

By (Visit website)
(4.14/5 - 7 votes)

These are one of my all time favourite cookies. I'm not sure why they're called London Almond cookies as I don't think it has any association with London but that's what I know them as. They are fairly time consuming to make but well worth the effort. They're highly addictive - I can never just have one! I managed to make over 100 cookies and probably ate about a quarter of it already! I've got lots of pictures as I was a little snap happy whilst making these.

Roast whole almonds 
Cream the butter and sugar until pale and creamy
Add in 1 egg yolk
Add flour
Wrap a whole almond in batter
Bake until golden brown
Toast almond flakes in the oven
In the meantime, melt chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water
Toasted almond flakes for the topping. You can also use 100s&1000s or other sprinkles
Dip cookies in melted chocolate and place in little paper cases. Top with roasted almond flakes.
Final result with a cross-section of 1 cookie
Think they look better with crushed almond flakes on top
Had some extra batter so I added in chocolate chips and oatmeal (leftover from making triple chocolate chip oatmeal cookies) and made mini cookies. Tasted great :)

125g butter
75g icing sugar
1 egg yolk
225g plain flour
150-200g (sorry can't remember how much) whole almonds (probably need 250-300g of whole almonds for the amount of batter made but I used what I had in my cupboard)
400g plain chocolate, melted
50g almond flakes

Preheat oven to 180CRoast whole almonds for about 10 minutes, sitrring in betweenCream the butter and sugar until pale and creamy.Add in 1 egg yolk (if you use the whole egg, it will make your batter very sticky)Stir in sifted flourWrap 1 whole almond in batter and shape into an oblong shape or into round ballsBake in the preheated oven for about 10-12minutes until golden brownRoast almond flakes in the oven until lightly browned - be careful not to burn them if your oven is already hot.Melt chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering waterDip the cookies in the melted chocolate and place in a small paper caseSprinkle toasted, crushed almond flakes on top or with a topping of your choice. Refrigerate until chocolate has set Enjoy :)
