  • cup Blanched Almonds
  • 3 cups Confectioners’ Sugar
  • ¾ cups Dutch-Process Cocoa Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoons Salts
  • 5 ounces Bittersweet Chocolate
  • 4 Large Egg Whites
  • ½ teaspoons Pure Almond Extract
  1. Awakening the Oven:

    Start by heating your oven to a warm 350°F. Dress two baking sheets in their parchment or silicone finery, preparing them. Almonds on one, sending them into the oven for 5 to 7 minutes, or until they turn golden.

  2. A Gentle Cool Down:

    After that, decrease oven’s temperature to 325°F. Put almonds and a cup of confectioners’ sugar in the food processor. Put them together with on-and-off pulsing, until the almonds are finely chopped in the form of powder.

  3. The Alchemy Begins:

    Transfer this powder to a mixing bowl with remaining sugar, cocoa powder, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Whisk them together, then mix it with bittersweet chocolate, egg whites, and almond extract into the fold. Mix it until each ingredient is mixed well with the others.

  4. Shaping Dreams:

    With a tablespoon of dough, place them onto your prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until they become dry to the touch. Cook cookies on their sheets for 2 minutes until transformation. Then after their transformation, transfer them to a wire rack to cool.

  5. Variations:

    For variation, almonds can be replaced by walnuts, and vanilla extract instead of almond. cinnamon can be removed.
