Today, I would like to share this yummy Chocolate Almond Cookies.  So soft and melt in the mouth, it is definitely a keeper's! 


Recipe sourced from Minty's Kitchen with slight changes


250g butter (at room temperature)
125g icing sugar
350g plain flour
30g cocoa powder
60g cornflour
150g almond flakes
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract


Beat the butter for about 5 mins then add in the icing sugar  and beat until light and fluffy.

Add in egg and vanilla extract, beat the mixture till all combined.

Sift the flour, cocoa powder and cornflour together and fold into the butter mixture.  Then add in the almond flakes and combine to form into a dough.

Divide the dough into two and shape into square logs (about 1.5" x 2").  Wrap the square logs with clingwrap and chill in the fridge for about 30 mins or an hour.  (Or you can put in the freezer for about 15mins)

Cut the logs into slices (about 0.8cm thickness)  and bake in a preheated oven of 175 deg C for about 20 minutes.

Cool the cookies on a wire rack and store them in an air-tight container.
