Number of serving: 6
1 cup whole natural almonds

3/4 cup confectioner's sugar

1 3/4 cups butter, softened

1/4 teaspoon almond extract

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

3 large eggs

2 cups granulated sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoon vanilla extract

6 oz semisweet chocolate

1/3 cup heavy cream

1/2 cup sliced almonds


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line 15 1/2" by 10 1/2" jelly-roll pan with foil, extending foil over rim. In food processor with knife blade attached, process whole almonds with 1/4 cup confectioner's sugar until nuts are finely ground.
  • In large bowl, with mixer at low speed, beat 3/4 cup butter and remaining 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar until blended. Increase speed to high; beat until creamy. At low speed, beat in ground-almond mixture, almond extract, and 1 3/4 cups flour just until blended.
  • With hands, pat dough evenly onto bottom of prepared jelly-roll pan. Bake until golden, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in pan on wire rack.
  • Meanwhile, in heavy 2-quart saucepan, heat unsweetened chocolate and remaining 1 cup butter over low heat, stirring frequently, until melted. Remove from heat. Cool slightly, about 10 minutes.
  • In large bowl, with mixer at high speed, beat eggs, granulated sugar, salt, and 1 teaspoon vanilla until ribbon forms when beaters are lifted, 5 to 10 minutes. Beat in chocolate mixture until blended. With spoon, stir in remaining 1 cup flour. Pour chocolate mixture over shortbread crust; spread evenly to edges. Bake until toothpick inserted 1 inch from edge comes out almost clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in pan on wire rack.
  • In heavy 2-quart saucepan, heat semisweet chocolate and heavy cream over low heat, stirring frequently, until chocolate has melted. Remove from heat; stir in remaining 1 teaspoon vanilla.
  • When cool, lift foil, with brownie, out of pan; peel foil away from sides. With metal spatula, spread chocolate glaze evenly over brownie. Sprinkle sliced almond on top. Let stand until set, about 2 hours. Cut lengthwise into 6 strips, then cut each strip crosswise into 12 pieces.
