Chef Chuck's Chocolate Almond Baci Cookies

Kisses for you!

Soft and delicate, a chocolate lovers dream, we have sweet chocolate, almonds and a chocolate hazelnut filling. This cookie can be eaten without the filling, they are just plain scrumptious. Baci, means kisses in Italian, I know you will fall in love with this recipe.

1 cup sugar
1 egg yolk
2 tablespoons organic milk
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup flour

Cream together butter and sugar, scrape bowl add egg yolk, milk, and almond extract. Scrape bowl and slowly add flour, ground almonds, cocoa and salt. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate 1 hour. Heat oven to 325 degrees, roll a ball of dough, about 1 teaspoon, place on parchment paper and bake for 12 minutes. Let rest on baking pan 10 minutes then transfer to a rack. When completely cooled, place a small amount of nutella on cookie and an almond in the middle.
