Double Chocolate Almond Cookies – Secret Recipe Club
It’s time again for another round of the Secret Recipe Club which I’ve been participating in for several months now! It was started by Amanda of Amanda’s Cookin’ and has grown so much it now has it’s own website! Click here to visit the Secret Recipe Club and to find out more if you are interested in joining or seeing great recipes for other groups.
This month I was assigned The Slow Roasted Italian. One of the great things about this club – and also one of the reasons it was designed – was to get bloggers to choose a recipe for a blog they may not have visited or otherwise known about it. Before getting my assignment for the month I had not visited this blog. Donna, the author of the blog, has a great selection of recipes.
She has everything from Italian Style Mac & Cheese to Unique Burgers to some tasty looking Cocktails! The past few rounds I’ve branched away from sweets, but when I found these Double Chocolate Almond Cookies I knew what my selection would be!
Donna adapted this recipe from the Tate’s Bake Shop recipe. I noticed she made the addition of coffee, which I really liked – adding coffee to chocolate baked goods is always a good move!
To me it seemed like this recipe had a pretty high ratio of butter compared to other cookie recipes. I like thicker cookies so I reduced the amount of butter in this recipe. My version is below.
