Ingredients

Choose your measure:

  • 1 1/3 cups semisweet chocolate or bittersweet chocolate
  • 3 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup almond flour, or finely ground almonds

Instructions

  1. In a double boiler or in the microwave, gently melt the chocolate, stirring frequently to avoid scorching. Remove from the heat.
  2. Add the butter to the melted chocolate bit by bit, stirring until melted. The chocolate may become a bit grainy from the water in the butter; that's OK.
  3. Whip the eggs, sugar, salt, and vanilla extract with an electric mixer on high speed for 2 minutes, until thickened and foamy. Fold this mixture into the chocolate-butter mixture, then gently blend in the almond flour. Chill the batter for 1 to 3 hours, until stiffened.
  4. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Lightly grease a baking sheet, or line with parchment paper.
  5. Drop the chilled batter by teaspoonfuls onto the prepared pan, spacing them about 2" apart. Immediately transfer the pan to the oven.
  6. Bake until the cookies are firm, about 10 to 13 minutes. Allow them to cool completely on the parchment before removing.
  7. Cookies may be served immediately; or stored at room temperature, tightly wrapped with plastic and the layers separated with parchment or waxed paper, for 3 to 5 days.
  8. Yield: about 3 dozen 2" cookies.
