Almond cookies sandwiches, raspberry filling with chocolate glaze
Hello!!! This are definitely my sidekick’s favorite!!!! And you will love them too!
I usually make them with strawberry preserve, but orange and passion fruit are also very good with.
You can make the cookies a couple of days in advance if you want.
The almond cookies are very delicate in flavor, and that makes them really good by themselves
If you don’t want to make the glaze, just buy those pre-made chocolate glazes.
Although if you make it yourself you always will know the ingredients and the quality
5 ounces butter, room temperature
¼ cup almond flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
2/3 cup powdered sugar
½ cup raspberry preserve
5 ounces bittersweet chocolate
4 Tablespoon hot milk
2 Tablespoon butter, room temperature
With the paddle attachment of you mixer; beat butter until smooth.
Add all-purpose flour, almond flour, powdered sugar and salt
Mix until just incorporated. (It will make a stiff dough)
Make two thick disks, wrap them individually in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 30 minutes.
You can refrigerate it up to 5 days
Turn oven to 350F
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or butter the sheet tray and slightly cover it with flour.
On a lightly floured work surface, roll out dough to about 1/8 inch thick
And with a cookie cutter, cut 2-1/2 inches circles (you can actually make any shape you want)
Arrange them in the tray and bake until golden brown between 12-15 minutes.’
Let cool down on a wire rack
Add approximately 1 teaspoon of preserve to one cookie, press the second cookie to make a sandwich
To glaze the cookie sandwiches
In a medium bowl add the chocolate, chopped really small (the smaller, the easier to melt will be)
Heat milk and butter to a boil, add it to the chocolate
Whisk until chocolate is smooth.
Pour about 1 Tablespoon of chocolate glaze on each cookie sandwich, trying to cover the entire cookie.
Let the cookies dry and transfer to a container, lining each cookie. If you stack the cookies too soon the glaze might get ruin. That is if you don’t eat all the cookies at once.
Also this are so delicious and so elegant, they make great gifts! Pack them in really nice boxes and share them!
