       Title: Almond Cookies/tvfn
  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 28 servings
     3/4 c  Unsalted butter; softened
       1 c  Sugar
       1 lg Egg
       1 tb Vanilla
     1/2 ts Almond extract
       2 c  All-purpose flour
     1/2 ts Salt
     1/2 c  Coarsely chopped almonds
     1/4 c  Unpeeled almonds
     1/4 c  Cocoa powder
     1/4 c  Confectioners sugar
       Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, cream the butter and
   sugar together until fluffy. Beat in the egg, vanilla, and almond extract.
   Sift the flour over the top, add the salt and the almonds and fold to
   combine thoroughly.
       Pull off little pieces of the dough and roll them into balls about 1
   inch in diameter, enclosing a whole almond in the center of each one. Place
   on the ungreased baking sheet and cook on the center rack of the oven for
   15 to 20 minutes, until light brown. Transfer to racks to cool slightly.
   When cool enough to handle, roll 1/2 of the cookies in the cocoa powder,
   and the remaining 1/2 in the confectioners sugar. Serve warm or return to
   the rack to dry. Makes about 28 cookies. TOO HOT TAMALES SHOW #THT6248
