Why I Love This Recipe

Must-have for Christmas!

Ingredients You'll Need

185 g flour
30 g cocoa
1/3 teas salt
185 g butter, softened
105 g icing sugar
1 egg yolk
1 teas almond or vanilla essence
30 g almonds, toasted, chopped
Glace cherries for decorating
a bit of melted chocolate (to stick cherries)


Mix all dry ingredients, add butter, egg yolk and essence. Make a soft dough, wrap in cello paper and keep in a cool spot for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat oven to 190*C, prepare baking tins. Baking paper helps a lot.

Form small balls from dough, put on a baking sheet, and middle of every ball press with your finger (or similar). Bake 8-9 minutes. When slightly cooled, each hole fill with a bit of chocolate and decorate with half of a cherry.

Keep in a cool spot for 2-3 weeks.
