Chocolate Blossoms

4.00 (1 Votes)

As our Chocolate Blossom cookies bake, little cracks appear to give them their unique look that's special enough for the holidays or anytime. With a hint of cocoa and a sweetness that can't be resisted, these are holiday cookie favorites.

What You'll Need:
  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped almonds
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
What To Do:
  1. In a large bowl, stir cocoa into melted butter. Cool slightly then stir in 1/2 cup flour, the granulated sugar, eggs, almond extract, baking soda, and salt. Beat until well blended. Stir in remaining 1/2 cup flour and the almonds until blended. Cover and refrigerate dough until firm, at least 3 hours or overnight.
     
  2. Preheat oven to 300 degree F. Coat a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
     
  3. Shape dough into 1-inch balls and roll each ball in confectioners' sugar. Place balls 3 inches apart on baking sheet.
     
  4. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until set and cookie tops have cracked. Remove from baking sheets and cool on a wire rack.
     

Makes about 2 dozen cookies.

Tip

We recommend placing the confectioners' sugar in a shallow pie plate and rolling each cookie to completely cover it.
