|Butter||4 Ounce, softened (1 Stick)|
|Sugar||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)|
|Vanilla extract||1 Teaspoon|
|Flour||6 Tablespoon (1/4 Cup Plus 2 Tablespoons)|
|Milk||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)|
|Sliced blanched almonds||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Chopped candied orange peel||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)|
|Semi sweet chocolate squares/Bittersweet chocolate squares||4 Ounce, melted (4 Squares, 1 Ounce Each)|
1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a medium bowl, beat butter, sugar, and vanilla with an electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Beat in flour and milk until a soft dough forms. Fold in almonds and orange peel.
2. Drop by slightly rounded measuring teaspoonfuls 3 inches apart onto generously greased cookie sheets. Flatten slightly with floured back of a spoon to make 2-inch rounds.
3. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown around edges. Let cookies cool 1 minute on sheets, then remove to racks and let cool completely.
4. Turn cooled cookies upside down and spread a thin layer of melted chocolate over bottoms. Let cool until chocolate is firm. Store in a tightly covered container.
