admin's picture
  Butter stick 8 Ounce, softened (2 Sticks)
  Granulated sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Firmly packed dark brown sugar 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Eggs 2
  Vanilla extract 1 Teaspoon
  Almond extract 1 Teaspoon
  Flour 3 1⁄2 Cup (56 tbs)
  Baking soda 1 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Almond paste 8 Ounce
  Semisweet chocolate chips 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Powdered sugar 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)

1. In a medium bowl, beat together butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Blend in vanilla and almond extract.
2. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and salt until well mixed. Add to butter-sugar mixture and blend well. Cover and refrigerate dough 30 minutes, or until firm.
3. Preheat oven to 350°F. Using about 1/4 teaspoon almond paste at a time, shape into 48 equal-size balls. Press 3 or 4 chocolate chips into almond paste. Wrap about 1 tablespoon chilled dough around each ball of filling, pinching to enclose completely.
4. Place about 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheets. Bake 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Let stand 2 minutes on cookie sheets, then remove to a rack to cool. When cool, roll in powdered sugar.
