Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 6
Categories: Chocolate / Cookies / Desserts

3/4  cup  Butter or margarine
14  ounces  Can sweetened, condensed milk
2    Eggs
1  teaspoon  Vanilla extract
1/2  teaspoon  Almond extract
2 3/4  cups  All-purpse flour
2/3  cup  Cocoa
2  teaspoons  Baking powder
1/2  teaspoon  Baking soda
1/2  cup  Finely chopped almonds

In large mixer bowl, beat butter, sweetened condensed milk, eggs, vanilla and almond extract until well blended. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and baking soda; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until well blended. Stir in almonds. Divide dough into 4 equal parts. Wrap each in plastic wrap; flatten into disk. Chill until firm enough to roll, about 2 hours. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Remove one part of dough at a time from refrigerator. Roll to about 1/8 inch thickness on floured surface. Cut into desired shapes. Place on lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until set. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. Drizzle chocolate glaze over top, if desired. Source: Good Housekeeping magazine
