Chocolate-Almond Cookies

Recipe from

Southern Living


1 cup butter or margarine, softened
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate mini-morsels
48 whole blanched almonds


Beat first 3 ingredients at medium speed with an electric mixer 2 minutes or until fluffy.

Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating at low speed until blended after each addition. Stir in chocolate morsels. Shape into 1-inch balls, and place on ungreased baking sheets. Press an almond in the center of each cookie.

Bake at 375° for 10 minutes. Cool on baking sheets 1 minute. Remove to wire racks to cool.
