1 10-ounce can Love’n Bake® Almond Paste
3/4 cup (5 ½ ounces) cups granulated sugar
1 whole egg
American Almond® sliced natural almonds, as needed
1/2 cup apricot jam
1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips, melted, optional


1.Preheat oven to 375º F degrees.

2.On slow speed in a mixer with paddle attachment, mix the Love’n Bake ™ Almond Paste with the sugar. Gradually add the egg to create a smooth paste. Mix until well blended.

3.Spread the sliced natural almonds out on a large plate. Scoop a Tablespoon of the dough and roll it in the almonds, forming each piece into a 3-inch log. (A cookie dough scoop with a ½ ounce capacity works well to portion the dough.) Curve into a crescent shape and position on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

4.Bake until the cookies are lightly browned, for about 12 to 15 minutes.

5.While the cookies are baking, heat the apricot jam in a small pan or in the microwave oven until it is spreadable. Set aside.

6.Remove the cookies from the oven then immediately brush each cookie with the melted jam. Cool the cookies on a wire rack then dip the ends into the melted chocolate if using.
