Why I Love This Recipe

Another recipe from my great-grandfather. I cannot recall him making them in my lifetime though. Due to the ounce measurements, I am sure he got this recipe out of a cookbook somewhere, but it is not in any of the books i inherited from him. I haven't made them yet, but when I do, I'll be better able to describe them for you.

Again, I always use Royal Vanilla and real unsalted butter in my recipes. This is a tradition started by my great-grandfather and I feel as though using them makes it taste all the better.

Ingredients You'll Need

9 oz powdered sugar
18 oz butter
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
25 oz flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3.5 oz cocoa
4 oz preserves
1 cup tempered dark chocolate
chocolate shot
blanched almond halves


Mix sugar, butter, eggs, and vanilla by hand.

Sift dry ingredients. Fold into butter mixture. Be careful not to work dough too much.

Chill for 30 minutes. Roll out to 1/8" thickness, cut out small star shapes.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes @ 350ºF. Cool on wire racks.

Place preserve mound on one cookie and top with another. Dip tips into melted chocolate then in chocolate shot. Pipe mound of chocolate in center, top with almond half.
