Monday's Recipe: Almond Chocolate Chippers

This recipe was a new one for the 2007 Cookie bake. Randy's uncle and his family loved them so much they asked for the recipe....FOUR times! lol. Apparently they tried to make them but they didn't turn out the same as ours, so they thought they'd gotten the recipe wrong...I think it was probably a matter of the memory being better than the actuality, but anyway, after that we had to include them in the 2008 bake as well!

Almond Chocolate Chippers

1/2 cup margarine
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg
2 teaspoons almond extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4 cup flour
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup slivered almonds

1/2 cup milk chocolate chips, melted
1/4 cup chopped almonds

Beat margarine with sugars until fluffy. Beat in egg and almond extract. Add baking soda and flour and beat well. With spoon, stir in 1 cup milk chocolate chips and slivered almonds.

Using about 1 teaspoon of dough, form into a log shape. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-9 minutes, til edges are slightly browned.

Let stand for 2 minutes before removing from baking sheets.

Cool completely. Dip one end in melted milk chocolate, then in chopped almonds.

Yield is about 3 dozen cookies
