A classic cookie that features almonds and almond paste, chocolate chips and apricot jam.
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.
