Description

These almond chocolate cookies come together in just over an hour for a simple and rich dessert. The cookies use shortening instead of butter, which gives them a delicate texture and really lets the chocolate shine. A simple frosting made from a mixture of sugar, cocoa, and almond extract adds a nice extra bit of sweetness and flavor. These cookies are great for bringing to a gathering or bake them around the holidays for edible gifting everyone on your list will love.
