Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 96
Categories: Chocolate / Cookies / Desserts

1  Cup  Unsalted Butter
2/3  Cup  Sugar
1  Large  Egg Yolk
1  Teaspoon  Vanilla
2  Cups  Flour
1/4  Teaspoon  Salt
1 1/3  Cups  Blanched Almonds, finely chopped
    -----Chocolate Dip-----
9  Ounces  Semisweet Chocolate Chips, (1 1/2 cups)
4 1/2  Tablespoons  Butter
1 1/2  Tablespoons  Hot Water

Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the yolk and vanilla, then flour, salt and finely chopped almonds, mixing well. Shape the dough into 2 rolls, each 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Wrap rolls and refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours. Preheat oven to 350 and line baking sheets with parchment paper. With a sharp knife, cut the dough into 1/4-inch thick slices. Place 1 to 2 inches apart on baking sheets and bake 8-10 minutes, just until lightly browned. Cool. In the top of a double boiler, melt the chocolate and butter for the topping. Add the hot water and stir until smooth. Dip an edge of each cookie into the chocolate and cool. Makes 8 dozen.
